I'm sorry, I have never heard anything about this until now.  The policy 
on packages on the mirrors is that they are in bz2 format, unless a 
package/book expects the original format (the groff patch in LFS 
development is still gz for this reason) or other problems happen with 
the re-compression.

Please contact me for any such problems so that I can fix it.  No reason 
to have users having problems over a simple file format change.

I will revert the uClibc-locale package to tgz format later today.
