I don't know how Dev-C++ works here (or even that there was a PhysicsFS 
binary package for it!) but generally PhysicsFS will expect either a 
system-provided version of zlib, or that it was built with the included 
copy of the zlib sources compiled into it.

The missing symbols in that linker error are part of zlib, which the 
.zip support needs to handle decompression.
