Hi, thank you for your report. I tried to apply a patch that substitutes
'p7zip' for '7z' as you proposed and it solved the compression problem.

# star -c -7z -f archive.tar.7z test
star: 1 blocks + 0 bytes (total of 10240 bytes = 10.00k).


However I bumped into a problem when I tried to extract the '.tar.7z' archive:

# star -x -f test.tar.7z
star: WARNING: Archive is '7z' compressed, trying to use the -7z option.
star: Hard EOF on input, first EOF block is missing at -1.
star: 0 blocks + 0 bytes (total of 0 bytes = 0.00k).
star: Compress program returned error[7].
star: Processed all possible files, despite earlier errors.

When '7z' is used explicitly, it works fine:

# 7z x -so test.tar.7z | star -x -f -
star: 579 blocks + 0 bytes (total of 5928960 bytes = 5790.00k).

I will have to take a look at this.
