 >no chance to fix the broken liblas/laszip stack?

 There is a significant amount of software development to catch it up to
 the latest LASzip release. The LASzip API that libLAS used is no longer
 supported, and the new LASzip API is very different from the one that
 libLAS (and previously PDAL) used.

 It would be better long term to get GRASS using PDAL. There was some
 effort on that topic, but I think it has stalled.
