-------------------------+--------------------------------------------------
 With xz now part of the requirements it makes sense to use it.
 I checked for most LFS packages and found these
 all available in .tar.xz ( and texinfo in .lzma - works correctly with
 "tar xf pkg.tar.lzma" )

 The LFS "home" packages could also be repacked, i.e.
 iana-etc & kbd-1.15.2 & bootscripts & module-init-tools & udev
