Branch: pkgsrc-2022Q3, Version: 1.1.13, Package name: pbzip2-1.1.13, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The pbzip2 program is a parallel version of bzip2 for use on shared
memory machines. It provides near-linear speedup when used on true
multi-processor machines and 5-10% speedup on Hyperthreaded machines.
The output is fully compatible with the regular bzip2 data so any
files created with pbzip2 can be uncompressed by bzip2 and vice-versa.
