I guess there should be no problem in downloading the latest bzip2
source code, build it and install it and create a module file for it.
We recently had to do this for libcurl because the OS provided version
was too old (didn't support https).

If you google "bzip source" you will find that the source code can be
found here: http://www.bzip.org/
