 On my current LFS+ build (where I put xz after bzip2 in chapter5,
and right at the end of chapter6) I had

checking for gzip... gzip
checking for compress... no
checking for bzip2... bzip2
checking for xz... xz
checking for gzopen in -lz... yes

 I've confirmed that man can use a .xz page with the above build
