Interesting, wasn't aware of this zstd library, I wonder if we can add
it and switch the other compression libraries we link against, so that
we're not adding one more library to the dep list of perf but removing
some instead, do you think this would be possible?

$ ldd ~/bin/perf | wc -l
30
$ ldd ~/bin/perf | grep z
liblzma.so.5 => /lib64/liblzma.so.5 (0x00007f3dcc356000)
libz.so.1 => /lib64/libz.so.1 (0x00007f3dcb2aa000)
libbz2.so.1 => /lib64/libbz2.so.1 (0x00007f3dcb218000)
$

Humm, from the github page it says:

-----
The project is provided as an open-source dual BSD and GPLv2 licensed C
library, and a command line utility producing and decoding .zst, .gz,
.xz and .lz4 files. Should your project require another programming
language, a list of known ports and bindings is provided on Zstandard
homepage.
-----

So it would cover just liblzma and libz, right?
