Since we must have an additional URL to fetch it.

I looked for mirrors on the Web for this tarball and couldn’t find one
(fossies.org doesn’t have it, for instance.)

Then I wanted to upload it to ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/guix/mirror, but
that is rejected:

  file rejected: xz-5.0.4.tar.gz contains a vulnerable Makefile.in
  Regenerate it with automake 1.11.6 / 1.12.2 or newer.

So we need another solution.  Any suggestions?  Like mirror URLs I might
have missed?
