What is the "standard distro" of zlib under Windows?

It is my understanding that physfs basically handles raw bytes and 
doesn't want to get into the business of providing file parsing.  It's 
trivial to layer something on top of physfs for that, and for embedded 
devices you really don't want to incur the overhead of adding more 
stuff that isn't strictly necessary.
