My recommendation for #1 would be to patch it to use gzip unless
there's some reason not to (old netnews software?) and for #2 to just
depend on net/uucp. There's no builtin support in net/uucp but that
could be arranged if anyone felt like bothering.

(surely it doesn't need to uuse uux while building, so uux doesn't need
to be a tool...?)
