How can I prevent files extracted using unpackDirectory from being extracted again during the install phase?

    It's possible to do this. First you add a rule to the folder you want to unpack and make sure it's always false. In this way the files will be packed but never unpacked by the installer.

          <description>Program Files</description>

    You can then unpack the file and if necessary use <copyfile> to copy the unpacked file to the installdir in the <postInstallationActionList>:
