xz on sparc64 appears to be broken.  Some time between 8.1-BETA1
and now the libpng (required for release builds because it's part
of the "docproj" port set) shifted from fetching a .bz2 file to
fetching a .xz file.  Uncompressing the file works fine on amd64
and i386 architectures but fails on sparc64.

I haven't had time to dig into why it's busted but I figured I
should at least let others know about it right away.  Is it
possible some knob related to big endian versus little endian
isn't being handled quite right?
