Packages which depend on zlib (libz.dylib) are getting confused between
the version supplied with the system (1.1.3 on MacOS X 10.2.x) and the
version explicitly built as a dependency through pkgsrc (1.2.2).

See pkg/30625 for an example of build failure.

Also, when installing archivers/unzip-5.52nb1, the following was

===> Registering installation for unzip-5.52nb1
unzip-5.52nb1 requires installed package zlib-1.2.2
===> Returning to build of mng-1.0.9
warning:  different zlib version (expected 1.1.3, using 1.2.2)

There may be other examples, but these are the first two I've seen.
On Mac OS X 10.2.8

cd .../pkgsrc/graphics/libwmf

cd .../pkgsrc/archivers/unzip
bmake install
Don't know how to do this, but is it possible to change the search
order for include files, so /usr/pkg/include/zlib.h is found before

The linker seems to be doing the right thing, but the compiler/preprocesor
is picking up the system-supplied header file instead of the pkgsrc-
installed one, or in the case of libwmf, it's picking both of them up and

MacOS X 10.3.9 and later appear not to have this problem (but the machine
in question can't run anything later than 10.2.8).
