I just did a test on Solaris 9 Sparc with Sun Studio 12 and got the following 
issues:

1. requires inttypes.h instead of stdint.h and requires extra include signal.h

There are due the old OS and probably not worth fixing:
  
http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/gar/browser/csw/mgar/pkg/zutils/trunk/files/0001-Use-inttypes.h-instead-of-stdint.h-and-add-signal.h.patch

2. Wrong type on str.insert: should be (char *) NULL instead of 0L

This leads to ambiguous casts either on 32 bit or with 0UL on 64 bit. This can
easily be corrected with
  
http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/gar/browser/csw/mgar/pkg/zutils/trunk/files/0004-Avoid-ambiguity-between-char-and-unsigned-long-on-sp.patch

Apart from that it works fine with 32 and 64 bit on spark, i386 and amd64.

We have been traditionally naming these with uppercase "Z". I remember you were
talking to the gzip team about adjusting the names to remove the collisions.
Has this been settled?
