at current moment erlang uses zlib v. 1.2.3, which is the latest
according to zlib's official site.
About patches -- it took me about 1-2 day to merge in new version of
zlib to erlang sources :)
In other hand -- what's the reason to include system zlib, if now it's
shipped with latest version of zlib?
