I'm not a user of jalview and have no idea about its value, but if you
would like to keep it, maybe it's possible to create a new SlackBuild
for the old version of p7zip, such SlackBuild will require no

Or (maybe better) the SlackBuild for jalview could contain old p7zip (or
download it from sourceforge).
