So I think archivers/xz should be treated the same and distributed in its

I don't think so. zlib is primarily handled like that because it is the
default compression scheme. bzip2 for historic reasons. I don't think XZ
has to be threated as such.

In that case do you have any problems with adding '--without-lzma' to
libarchive's configure arguments in bsdtar and pkg_install?

Yes, I have. What's wrong with picking it up if it is present in the
base system?
