The bzip.org website is down. Use the Buildroot backup download site.
Change the website link to a gitlab repo that mirrors the content of the
tarball.

Not sure this is the best upstream location. The LWN thread also has
this comment https://lwn.net/Articles/762340/ which points to this
webpage https://sourceware.org/bzip2 which has a canonical locations
pointing to https://www.sourceware.org/bzip2/

So, I am not sure which is better: an out-dated (but soon to be revived)
webpage, or a git tree made by a random guy on a random forge (there are
also github trees as well, and no doubt we can also find more random git
trees elesewhere).

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.

In my opinion, the best option at this point is to drop this link entirely. We 
can always put it back when "real" upstream reappears.

What do you think?
