The discussion has shifted to
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/ticket/4736

Basically, pax is not really needed, except for passing the LSB tests.
OTOH, it is a nice utility, which can read and write both cpio and tar
formats. It lacks the xz compressed format, though.

I would say that it does not hurt to have it in the book (and that it is a low
and easy maintenance package). I am ready to commit, but will wait for others
advice.
