    It's not a relic, it's design. We don't want the kernel's zlib routines
    right now, we want our own. Did it not link the way it was? It's been
    a few releases since I last compiled for my PReP box, but it was well
    after the zlib changes had gone in.

    Again, we don't want the 'normal' zlib there either. Was it not
    linking? If so, what was the error?
