scripts: support fetching and extracting .deb files

Debian .deb files are 'ar' style archives containing data and control
tarballs.  Extract using ar itself instead of dpkg-deb to be more

I couldn't figure out how to log the output without creating a
temporary file.  Skip the log to make the script cleaner.
