>> What is the "standard distro" of zlib under Windows?
> Not sure what your point is.

Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying.  It seemed like you were 
asking that physfs not include the zlib distro because there was a 
"standard" zlib distro.  On Unix and OS X this is true, there's 
usually a zlib.a or zlib.so floating around you can automatically use. 

On Windows this is not the case, so Ryan can't rely on someone else 
having the distro, especially if he wants a blessed version.  As he 
said, on non-Windows systems I believe it defaults to using the 
installed zlib, so the Windows build comes with zlib (although you can 
remove it if you're already using zlib).

Anyway, my point was simply that there wasn't a standard zlib 
installation that Ryan can expect a physfs user to have, at least on
