as far as i see there's no real diff between 1.11.5 and 1.11.10 wrt
calls to zlib; i'm interested in seeing that commit message. anyways,
if there's fix to cvs-to-zlib call in between 1.11.5 to 1.11.10,
why do i have to be blamed publically for upgrading thirdparty software?
i'm fixing bugs and get blamed. it's not fair.
