Little speedup suggestion

I've just looked thru my cvs diff for tinderbox scripts/ and remembered
that I've used a little hack to speed up package creation/installation.
I guess that's not really suitable for upstream, but may be useful for
individuals running tinderbox for e.g. port testing.

The thing is to use gzip, not bzip2 to compress packages. gzip is
faster, and afair doesn't use maximum compression level by default,
so things should get a bit snappier. No real time trials, sorry.
