Bug Description

Binary package hint: upx-ucl

I'm trying use upx to compress win32/pe file with params:

upx -9 --brute --ultra-brute file.exe

But upx crashed and show me error:

upx: packer_c.cpp:43: static bool Packer::isValidCompressionMethod(int): Assertion `0 && "Internal error - LZMA not compiled in"' failed.

So problem is that ubuntu binary upx is not compiled with LZMA. It is possible to enable LZMA support for upx?
