I don't like rename of libraries because it break outside of pkgsrc.

Once I added tokyocabinet to pkgsrc, xz package did not exist yet, no problem,
so enabled lzma support by default and not optionify.
I'll be optionify (enabled for continuity) at next update of tokyocabinet.

Perhaps, the best solution is "convert tokyocabinet to use liblzma from xz",
because when author of tokyocabinet added lzma support,  no easy-to-use lzma 
then created liblzma.
