Comment (by eborisch):

 I don't have 10.15 running, but from

 We may just want to change our test to see if our libarchive is installed
 rather than if it claims to support --hfsCompression.

 I still think supporting compression is a big win, especially for

 have lots of them) or anyone on a laptop (fixed size storage; every byte
