I just wanted to update to libpng-1.2.26-r1 because of the security advisory and I find that it wants to pull in lzma-utils. Please change the ebuild back to use the bz2 archives. Forcing yet another superduper compression utility down everyone's throat is not the proper way to go. It's unnecessary bloat.
upstream decided that.
upstream also decides the building tool (make/cmake/dmake/scons/....), and the programming language of the software, that's not new...

I think there's been a mistake. What does this bug have to do with bug 18459 which concerns a new package gwget?
@cJ: upstream is still offering .tar.bz2 packages and libpng installed just fine after I copied the ebuild to my private overlay, replaced lzma with bz2 and removed the lzma dependency.
I don't see the point, forcing lzma on our users, when bzip2 and gzip tarballs are available, either. Well, maintainer decision.
Sorry, I didn't know that upstream still proposed bzip'ed packages.
I don't know what's the point in complaining about lzma, though :)
deal with it
