without ncompress the check passes, but output is

xdelta3: testing line 1: compress: command not found

after installing ncompress package the test passes so I see no harm in adding it to checkdepends

xdelta3: testing externally_compressed_io.........xdelta3: compress=0... success

Additional info:
* package version(s) 3.1.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. run makepkg without ncompress installed
2. command not found
3. install ncompress
4. check passes
This task depends upon

So yesterday I tested with ncompress and I saw today that there was new major version in repos 5.0-1 so just want to let you know that this check passes with 5.0 too.

I looked into this, but there are new issues when compiling the latest version.
