Update of /cvsroot/src/external/zlib/pigz/dist
In directory

Log Message:
(once again in the right place)

initial import of pigz 2.1.6 sources.

pigz, which stands for parallel implementation of gzip, is a fully functional 
replacement for gzip that exploits multiple processors and multiple cores to the
hilt when compressing data. pigz was written by Mark Adler, and uses the zlib 
and pthread libraries.

How is it pronounced?
I'm glad you asked. It is pronounced "pig-zee". It is not pronounced like the 
plural of pig.

once i am done adding bz2 support to pigz, i plan to obsolete my usr.bin/gzip.
