UPX bundles lzma library -- and incorrectly does so in a form that reaches into ../../SOURCES/lzma465.tar.bz2

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #564522 +++

Description of problem:
the lzma sdk is bundled in our upx package.  This is not allowed and must be stopped.  From the looks of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501636 this change is only to enable lzma compression so if worse comes to worse we can remove the support and still have a usable package.  It would be better to find a solution that lets us unbundle liblzma and still retain the functionality, though.

new content:

but ALSO, it is using buildsystem relative paths to reach up into ../../SOURCES, rather than carrying a clean reference to SOURCE1

I don't quite understand how this can work except for strange co-incidences in a particular build system as to path names

This can be fixed directly, pending a resolution on #564522's issue
