It seems to be a bug in the script that creates snapshots. The zlib subdirectory is not included in the the source tarball, even though it's part of the BK tree. "make dist" seems to fail to include it - a bug on our side. Thanks for spotting this one - I will try to correct it ASAP.

As a workaround, don't recreate the configure script and's and just use the "configure" script included in the source snapshots directly.

This is part of the BDB build, but does not seem to be critical. As BDB is slated for removal anyway, I would not bother with it.
