Should perl-compress-raw-lzma be dependency of john (1.9.0.jumbo1-6)?

I install john (1.9.0.jumbo1-6) via pamac successfully. When I try to use 7z2john. It turns out those:

[kearney@xx ]$ 7z2john 
Can't locate Compress/Raw/ in @INC (you may need to install the Compress::Raw::Lzma module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.34/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.34/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.34/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl) at /usr/bin/7z2john line 6.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/7z2john line 6.

That is quite easy to know the solution is install Lzma. Then I install perl-compress-raw-lzma (2.101-2) form AUR via pamac. Then it finally works.

[kearney@xx ]$ 7z2john 
Usage: /usr/bin/7z2john <7-Zip file>...

So I am curious about whether perl-compress-raw-lzma is the depend of john

pacman -Si john
