I am debating changing the perl-modules to the original gz files.  Where 
possible though, we have tried to bzip2 them since in most cases it 
compresses better and all files are standard (besides zip files, not 
even going to touch those).  If anyone has an opinion about this, please 
let me know.  For LFS, I will keep them as bz2 but for blfs I am willing 
to be flexible.  Thanks.

Justin
