Erico, All,

Adding Thomas in Cc, for he may need to act on existing patches ;-)

I was pretty sure we had added support for download dependencies
recently, and added host-tar as needed, but it seems this series
of mine is still pending:

So, we should now detect if gzip is acceptable for use by Buildroot, and
if it is not, build our own host-gzip.

Does pigz isdentifies itself as pigz, or does it really impersonate
gzip? If the former, then it will be easy to detect, but if the latter,
it becomes more complex (we'd have to compress a wellknown blob and see
if the compressed stream matches what we expect.)

Yes, see the series I referenced above, as well as its cover letter:
