But lzma-4.32.7-3 -- the *current* version of lzma -- IS empty.

4.43-2 is...WAY old.  4.32.7-2 is the most recent one, prior to the
latest update.

I know it looks like it, but "4.43" is NOT actually newer.

lzma-4.43 was derived from a patched version of the LZMA SDK.

lzma-4.32.7-X were derived from LZMA Utils, which follow a different
numbering scheme.

Hmmm...I think I know what happened...because of the screwy version
numbers, I need to re-establish the prev: and curr: settings in the
setup.hints.  I'll go do that now.
