Ken, my sentiments exactly. The patch looks a bit hairy for straight
inclusion into LFS.

>From the bzip-1.0.2 CHANGES file:-

"Note that this release does not improve the rather crude build system
for Unix platforms.  The general plan here is to autoconfiscate/
libtoolise 1.0.2 soon after release, and release the result as 1.1.0
or perhaps 1.2.0.  That, however, is still just a plan at this point."

So if Craig is REALLY bored, he might want try that instead. But of course
it may well be prudent to contact the maintainer first to avoid duplicating
