No bug here, this should go into the README instead.

Here's the patch formatted correctly:

Failing to intialise a variable before using it IS a bug, I don't see how this is any different.

This patch ensures that the bzip2 compression stream is enabled before it is used. This patch will stop error notices being spewed over manual pages. The informative message could be omited, but as there is already a bug regarding this exact problem (#29521) I cannot see why it would be a problem.

I ofcourse agree with Derick, it should ALSO go in the readme.

It still should not be checked here - perhaps in configure though.
