Re: Why did devel/bison grow a dependency on xz?

Do we want such "core" packages as bison, autoconf, gcc and friends
depending on xz?
It seems like a bad idea for the proprietary platforms that pkgsrc
runs on. Especially if it won't build with the default compilers
on those systems. (and the GCC_REQD seems to imply it won't.)
Just trying to keep in mind that pkgsrc is meant for (and used
on) more than NetBSD-recent.
