Then I suppose I misunderstood the effect of USE_PIGZGZIP.  I was under
the impression that it only affected the selection of the tool used to
provide "gzip"-type compression (use 'pigz'/'nbpigz' versus actual 'gzip'
or 'nbgzip').  I would have expected it not to affect the use of other
compression types when requested/specified (i.e., for "xz" use 'xz').

For my own purposes, I could easily turn on USE_XZ_SETS=yes for all
architectures as they only run -current via netboot/NFS-root and only
need to uncompress the {,x}etc.tar.xz sets natively for 'etcupdate' and

By the same token, although I use the "iso-image" target, I don't actually
burn a CD/DVD for anything (except to produce a boot disk for my dreamcast
with pkgsrc "dc-tools", and I haven't done that in a while).  As such,
image size is at present immaterial.

This will likely change when NetBSD-9 comes to pass, though.
