pkgng doesn't call the xz executable for compressing packages; instead
it uses library code via libarchive.  So making it compress created
packages is a bit more involved than just tweaking a command-line somewhere.

However, yes, this would be a desirable behaviour.  If you could open an
issue at Github, that would be great.

PS.  There's a brand-new freebsd-pkg@ mailing list which I'd encourage
people to use for this sort of question.
