we had a long discussion about xz/lzma support some time ago. So I finally
added xz-utils to testing and rebuild libarchive to make use of it.
If everything is OK we can move both to core and remove lzma-utils from extra.
I don't know if anything else has to be recompiled to add support for xz/lzma.
PS: you can build xz archive with bsdtar (part of libarchive).
PPS: the git version of pacman/makepkg (future 3.3) should support the xz
format (not tested)
