[meta-freescale] [meta-fsl-arm] Missing host dependency for 3.10 kernel?

I just tried to build the 3.10+ kernel for my SabreLite board
and got this error:
  LZO     arch/arm/boot/compressed/piggy.lzo
/bin/sh: lzop: command not found
make[2]: *** [arch/arm/boot/compressed/piggy.lzo] Error 1

It seems that the 'lzop' program (a new one on me) is not installed
on any of my build hosts.

Shouldn't this be handled by the Yocto build system using either
a sanity requirement or native package to provide the tool?
