I've mentioned that in response to the original commit.

LZMA support is actually implemented via xz-utils [1], which seems to
be some kind of lzma-utils-ng. It's currently in beta and even has a
new file format, .xz. lzma-utils, which you have compiled, are stable
but provides no support for .xz files and doesn't have the functions
the cmake file looks for. It took me some time to figure that out too,
and I think the URL that macro_log_feature points to should be
changed. I also don't know if it's OK to (optionally) depend on beta
