works fine here. signoff x86_64.

I'd like to keep unneeded packages out of core. I see no need to move
lzma into core. We only support tar.gz for our repos. Whoever wants to
use a different format can rebuild libarchive easily.

I also wonder if our new tar package now supports lzma and lzop
compression (no tests so far). Both packages were not present when
building the tar package in he chroot. But even when it's now possible
to use these formats at runtime they should stay in extra until we may
use them for our repos.
