It *will* always be put in "STAGING_DIR/usr/bin".
The new configuration item allows you to put it in /usr/local/bin as well, an extra feature.
STAGING_DIR/usr/bin/lzma will still be available.

Buildroot won't find "STAGING_DIR/usr/bin/lzma" so you have to do
PATH:=$(STAGING_DIR)/usr/bin:$(PATH) outside buildroot.

This is not obvious, so the linux compile will fail for all newbies.

Except that it will break the build.

It is noted in the configuration that you need 'sudo' access.
If you don't you have to setup the PATH.

A long term solution would be for the persons needing lzma
to fix it so that it is used from STAGING_DIR.

Maybe the Linux compile should do:

make LZMA=$(STAGING_DIR)/usr/bin/lzma -C $(LINUX26_DIR)
