Sounds like there would be no ZLIB support within OpenSSL then, however
size of resultign libcurl is not decreased - No point in that - at least
not from my point of view.

That sounds good. All features enabled for both libs - why would you want
to have it any other way??

Why? You already included the ZLIB with the OpenSSL build... so this
doesn't make sense to me. I can't see a reason for that - excepct if you
want to disable gzip decompression of http responses.
