	Without zlib on host system, is doomed to fail.  This is commonly not included
	and adds to intimidating complexity for potential cross-builder-people in pre-environment
	try a default install of Interix, watch build fail.
	would prefer just including support for zlib in src/tools/compat, but good documentation on
	bootstrapping Interix for  pre- invocation which includes described gotcha would also suffice.
