Actually, on second thought:


This no longer seems to be necessary, even though I see nothing about it in their changelog

Yeah, seems like they use vendored versions of those dependencies now.

Removed ucl as build dependency.

I tried to find an option to use system's version of ucl library, but they added ucl as vendored lib because they use updated version of ucl.
ucl library was added to Solus repo for sole purpose of having it as dependency library for upx, so now that i removed it from upx, do we even need it in repo?

Yeah, I also saw that they kept that vendored library more up-to-date than the standalone. As you said, since it's only used for this specific purpose I think we can get rid of our separate package for it afterwards.
