I think you mean "liblzma" can help.
I plan to import liblzma into FreeBSD base system as
/usr/lib/liblzma.a and /usr/lib/liblzma.so (that may
change to /lib/liblzma.so), with the headers in
/usr/include/. I expect xz to end up as /usr/bin/xz.
I'm not familiar enough with kernel development processes
to understand the implications there.
