Good question

The API to LASzip changed with version 3.   I use LASzip 2.2.0 compiled
with liblas from 2013 and have no problems so far.   https://laszip.org/
The most recent version of 3  was for version 1.4 of the LAS spec.

You need to compile current pdal and current  liblas with different
versions of the Laszip library .

pdal used to output version 1.2 of las data by default . I t worked fine
for me at version 1.6 . I have not checked if that is the case with version
1.7.1 .  1.7 had a bug which required a quick bugfix to 1.7.1, by the way.
( I do not recall the bug off of the top of my head.)
