Sorry, I didn't see the original post so writing back to a reply.  This 
all shouldn't be an issue anymore since at least a month.  The whole of 
the LFS FTP repo was converted to original package formats, and so the 
ftp mirrors should all have the .gz version now.

Let me know if you see problems with new package tarballs, etc.
