It would be possible, but wouldn't such a zipfile just create open up
the possibility for even more confusion when there would then be yet
another distribution of these libs? (A long time ago I *did*
distribute self-built jpeg, tiff, zlib and whatnot, but stopped doing
that as there were other distributions, too, that were just as good,
or even more directly from the source, like zlib.)
