It tells me that the file "isn't provided by a port", whatever file I throw at it.

I found the explanation. Nowadays, liblzma is provided by port:xz . Before launching the upgrade procedure I'd pruned a number of ports that had been installed (or promoted to) +universal. I wasn't expecting port:xz (nor port:curl) to provide libraries, so I replaced them with the normal variant.
My bad ...
