rsync includes a slightly modified and incompatible version of zlib.
(PhD-project over-optimization...)  To update to a newer zlib would
require merging those changes across.

It might be nice to go back to using standard zlib sometime:

 - can upgrade to newer versions

 - can use shlibs on systems that ship zlib

 - avoids people breaking -z by forcing a link to another zlib :-)

but this probably requires a protocol revision.
