The warnings are OK -- I've turned up the default level because we
ought to fix them eventually, but they're not the problem now.

Unfortunately the zlib security fix was broken in 2.5.3.  I think it's
fixed now in 2.5.4pre1.  If you can, please try 2.5.4pre1 and see if
that will fix it; alternatively don't use -z.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
