I realize that this may be slightly off-topic, but I (and plenty others who
are aware of the problem) feel that it needs to be addressed.

When PHP is configured to use an external library for MySQL support, if zlib
support is not added then PHP fails with an "unresolved symbol: compress"
error due to the fact that the newer versions of the MySQL client libraries
seem to require libz.so in order to function. I have tried a couple of times
to patch ext/mysql/config.m4 to resolve this, but I haven't been successful.

Some PHP bug reports which refer to this problem are: 5651, 6811, 6981, 7266,
8307, 8332, and 8575.

I'm certain that there are many who would appreciate it if you could deal with
this issue once and for all.

Thank you for your time.
