Very strange, though I have no Basilisk experience, (PC's make me shudder,
must be some childhood trauma ;-) I just checked this on my Mac and no
sweat, even recognizes packages without an icon. (so which lack the
type/creator info)

So there would be three suggestions, reinstall NCU and make sure you have
all the necessary stuff, (though it seems that this was taken care of
already) drag and drop a .pkg on the NCU icon (thus forcing it to open with
NCU) and maybe still give PackType from Steve a shot.
