No, it won't, because it's a ports problem.

If you are looking for a one-line solution: rebuild all your installed
ports.  portupgrade -af.

A somewhat more measured approach is to check which /usr/local/lib/*.la
files reference /usr/local/lib/liblzma.*, look up which ports these
.la files belong to, and only rebuild those ports.
