Sure its only a few KB. Even the complete lzma-utils package would be only 

Anyway: Would it be better to use (successor) xz instead? Or ist the file 
format somehow compatible?

However: I think its a good idea to build libarchive with support for lzma/xz. 
Other tools (afaik KDE 4.3) will make use if this then, too.
