Tar has nothing to do with compression formats. Compression /
decompression is handled via external programs. If you wish to use
multithreaded lzma, make sure tar invokes lzma compressor capable of
handling this compression, either by supplying it with the -I
option, or by declaring it as default for the --lzma option,
using --with-lzma=PROG option to configure.
