Strange. Maybe I misunderstood soemthing about the headers.

Of course not. lzma-utils are a fork of the lzma utilities in the lzma
SDK. We have to decice whether we want to stay compatible with the SDK
(code state right now) or the fork (supported by your patch). Peronally,
I'd prefer to use the SDK and import the v3 in-tree lzma utilities
(which are identical to those in the SDK) in the v2 tree. That avoids
any current and future incompatibilities.
