As I understand it, all the precompressed payload option does is tells the
build process not to try to run lzma on the payload when LZMA compression is

It allows buildrom to use its own compiled version of lzma instead of the
one that the user might have in his path.

Since I didn't set the variable, but just allowed it to be set in the
future, my hypothesis is that it changes nothing for abuild.

I'm running abuild now.
