I don't think you're the only one.

BTW; we should have uClibc++ available in buildroot. maybe I'll look at
it. (I haven't seen it, maybe I'm just blind?)

I use LZMA on my target (ARM9 but also floppyfw, which is intel and buld
using a devkit build by buildroot...), so you're not the only one :=)

BTW, I had lzma in buildroot some time ago but I've been using the SDK
directly and not the lzma-utils, which are a derivative. I have to admit
I am a bit unsure if lzma-utils is the right thing altho it's more
compatible option wise. (which could be fixed by a wrapper script).

but now we use lzma-utils and I am digressing alot.

You can, if you want to, wait with applying the patch and I'll verify it 
myself (have to admit I havent after moving it from toolchain to package.) 
and also add the lzma-headers back in.
