[New-bugs-announce] [issue6016] Use shipped zlib if the system version is bad

New submission from Daniel Diniz <ajaksu at gmail.com>:

The attached patch makes setup.py use the shipped zlib.h in
Modules/zlib/ when a bogus zlib.h is found by find_file.

However, I couldn't test it (nor make it work) when a system zlib is
missing (no time right now). Can we build the shipped zlib and link
against it?
