I think the conan community also enjoyes cmake because it integrates
very well. So, since this CMakeLists.txt is quite well developed its
not unlikely that more people looking mostly for liblzma will try to
switch to cmake.

Are you still considering this mostly for MSVC? If so, it may be
helpful to add an explicit check, to avoid people trying to track
down problems of missing 'config.h'. But if more platforms could
qualify it would certainly be appreciated! Maybe some of the major
platforms like Linux and macOS?

Anything I can do to help?

All the best,
