   "make dist" now builds .tar.xz files, rather than .tar.gz ones.

Please, don't replace gzip and bzip2 files with xz files. The xz format has serious design flaws[1]. Xz-embedded implementations like Busybox can't verify the integrity of standard xz files[2]. Please, at least continue distributing also .tar.gz files.
