Unfortunately, a closer look dispelled the hope. The
public-domained files only show how to use the GPL'ed ones. I had
a conversation with the author, who is worried about incompatible
formats being spawned if he releases lzma from under LGPL. He
might change his mind in the future, though.
So I guess we'll have to stick to using lzma from ports for now.
