because that document says so a few lines further down ;-)

USE_XZ_SETS     If "no", use the host "gzip" program to compress sets.
                Otherwise use xz to compress things.
                Default: "yes" for architectures with "enough" memory to
                decompress, "no" for older ones.
                This is currently incompatible with USE_PIGZGZIP, setting
                USE_PIGZGZIP=yes sets USE_XZ_SETS=no by default for all
