Hm, there's also a somewhat confusing situation with LZMA.  I'm not sure I
completely understand it, but from what I can tell the lzma.h header file should
be coming from the new "xz" project, not from the lzma project.  That is, on my
Fedora 10 box, in order to get LZMA support compiled, I needed to install the
xz-devel package; lzma-devel was not sufficient.
