This is a bundled library and needs to stop.  How to stop doing it is
another question :-)

Looks like some background information is here:

1) Rebreak LZMA support by simply removing the lzma library
2) Figure out just which files need to be imported from the LZMA source to
compile and include those.  This would hinge on the definition of a bundled
library which FPC is mulling over right now.
3) Port upx to use something other than the old liblzma.  From the sounds of
it, the old liblzma doesn't provide the needed API for upx to work.
However, xz's liblzma is supposed to be closer to the zlib API so it might
be possible to change this now.
4) You can request an exception from FESCo but it would need a compelling
reason to grant it.
