Used. jemalloc and xz-utils are third-party projects included into MariaDB
source tree. Both use autotools.
In Debian builds bundled jemalloc is not used - we use system jemalloc,
as far as I remember (please, double-check).
But tokudb always uses bundled xz-utils, because it requires
specifically xz-4.999.9beta. Anyway, tokudb doesn't build on ARM64,
so it doesn't matter whether old config.guess supports it or not.
