Ghostscript is diretibuted with zlib. If you don't delete it before building,
Ghostscript will build fine, and if you want SHARE_ZLIB=1, then the executable
will use the system zlib.

The fact that the build process needs (some of) the sources in the zlib we
distribute does not affect the ability to build a gs that does not include
the zlib objects.

If you are concerned about the disk space for objects built for the %rom% file
system compression (mkromfs), then you probably want to make sure and do
a 'make clean' after you install the gs you built.

I went back and forth between closing this as WONTFIX vs. WORKSFORME. Both
apply.
