p7zip now requires lzma 9.1, but upx still requires lzma 4.6, so the problem is
a bit complicated. Maybe writing a wiki documents all packages bundling
lzma-sdk is more easier.

Do you mind to open a ticket on fesco about bundling source file issue?
Currenly, packaging guideline only forbid bundling system libs.
