lha needs to be removed from Fedora due to confusing (non FSF/OSI approved) license

The license for LHA is in Japanese. As a result of this, the FSF cannot in good
standing determine whether its custom license is a Free Software License or not.
They advise that we remove this package.
All attempts (in English and Japanese) to contact the upstream author for LHA
have failed, and there has not been a release of LHA since 2004. Nothing in
Fedora Core depends on LHA, and the only Fedora Extras dependency is an optional
one (it calls out to lha if it is present).
This package should be removed before Fedora Core 6 is GA.
