Since no one else replied I went ahead and investigated this myself. Current CVS seemed to contain version 1.1.3 of the zlib library.
The page: http://www.gzip.org/zlib/advisory-2002-03-11.txt seems to indicate that version 1.1.3 IS vulnerable. I have gone ahead, and incorporated the 1.1.4 versions of the relevant files in my tree and created a patch. It still compiles on my box, but I have done 0 testing. I'm not even sure where the zlib compression is used in the program. Attached is the relevant patch. I would recommend someone package a new release, and indicate possible security issues with older versions on the web site.
