Red Hat Linux still ships with no bzip2 support (by
default).  This is a major annoyance to those of us with
slow connections and who prefer to download the smaller
tarballs, and a "bug" that's so easy to fix -- just add the
bzip2 package as one of the default components and compile
tar with bzip2 support built in.
