Description Ville Skyttä 2014-03-15 15:14:54 EDT

unalz is using a bundled copy of bzip2.

$ rpm -qlp http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/unalz/0.65/8.fc20/x86_64/unalz-debuginfo-0.65-8.fc20.x86_64.rpm | grep /bzip2
Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2014-03-17 11:21:14 EDT
It's not possible to unbundle the bzip2 library as the tool modifies the sources (especially the decompression routines) to implement the ALZip format.

I'm going to remove this package from Fedora.
