Yup, the rpm-build dependency on "lzma" is for the command line utility 
for uncompressing lzma compressed sources and patches. Hmm... and actually 
in current rawhide the lzma dependency is plain bogus %__lzma just points 
to xz:

# Deprecated, use %__xz instead.
%__lzma                 %__xz --format=lzma

I'll kill off the unnecessary dependency.
