PackageKit apparently depends on lzma

(Note: I am totally new to FreeBSD ports and have no idea if I am sending this
to the right place.)

At least for FreeBSD 8.2-stable, the most recent PackageKit port requires that
the lzma port be installed -- it fails to link if you have not
installed the lzma port
(which itself requires a little hand-holding since it overrides the
base system's
"xz", which I'm not sure if that's OK either...).

My guess is that this should be listed in the LIB_DEPENDS line in

This diff (using cut and paste with gmail so blanks get expanded) seems to
work, but I don't really know if it is right.

    depends on lzma

    PackageKit needs lzma installed (overriding base xz).  List
    this in the LIB_DEPENDS.
