Synopsis: include libz support in src/tools/compat [change-req]

The top-level ./BUILDING document refers to tools/compat/README as 
"Special notes for cross-hosting a NetBSD build on non-NetBSD platforms"
and has done since 2003-12-29.  

tools/compat/README has had platform-specific comments about zlib
being required since that file was created in 2002-02-01, and those
zlib dependency comments were made generic in 2021-05-06.

After 21 years it's safe to say that we're not going to get around to
adding zlib to tools/compat, and requiring that as a build dependency
is sufficient.
