	it seems that there are off_t issue with zlib 1.1.3.
	though we have made sure to use off_t for function signature, zlib
	looks to hardcode file offset field (total_in and total_out in
	struct z_stream_s).  also, source code casts values to uLong
	when manipulate total_{in,out} (like in gzread() of gzseek()).

	it did not bite me yet, and not sure if it is real problem (i think
	it is).   could anyone let me know if it is real?
