cmake error: could NOT find LibLZMA (missing: LIBLZMA_INCLUDE_DIR

I am trying to install this software called acqu-root. It depends on the main software called root. I managed to install the main software but having problems with the acqu-root. I get the following error.

[kabi@localhost build]$ cmake ..

You need to install lzma-devel using yum (Fedora, RHEL, CentOS…), or liblzma-dev using apt-get or aptitude (Debian, Ubuntu…); it contains LibLZMA which the CMake configuration is looking for.

Try

yum install xz-devel

on Centos to get the liblzma libraries (for Silver-searcher, for example. Also may need pcre-devel for the libpcre dependency)
