Hi, Daniel. The only reason I downloaded and installed zlib is that in
the docs, it says that Makefile.vc6 depended on it.

I wasn't aware I could optionally use it in libcurl. What would be the
advantage? And how can I change the Makefile (or whichever file) to
include it. Right now, it doesn't. It only seems to link it into curl,
not libcurl.
