Sure. Call it whatever you want. But libcroco does not directly depend
on xz or liblzma. Grepping the entire libcroco distribution for 'lzma'
matches only some makefile goop for creating .tar.lzma files.

We should not be adding a bogus xz runtime dependency to libcroco (and
everything else that uses libxml2) and the checks done by pkgsrc
should not demand one or encourage people to add one incorrectly.
