 Closing this ticket for the reasons previously stated.

 Additionally, I have spent two days looking at packages to see if they
 need updates. I have not run into *ONE* BLFS package that uses xz format.
 However, I have seen *MANY* that are packaged using LZMA.

 I do not want to set precedent that we *ADD* a new package that is
 considered development.

 This is not directed at you personally, Ag. I just think it sets bad
 precedent. Additionally, we don't need it for any BLFS package.
 Furthermore, it is CMMI. One should not need instructions to build this
