IF Octave does not need libz (neither directly or indirectly) 
AND the configure script for building Octave fails because of a missing libz
THEN this configure script is BROKEN.

I think we should not get used to this and just fiddle a bit here and there 
it works anyway. Even the inherent unixisms should (and can) be ironed out 
"executables have no extensions", "the path separator is :"). But that's a bit
OT now, I admit.
