Only the components of it that require external (.so) libraries.  We
still use its formatting library and a bunch of data structure
classes, and perhaps some others.  You should be able to get away with
a partial installation (for instance, on my Debian box, I need only
libboost-dev, not any libboost-<thing>-dev).

External zlib has always been required; I think the installation
instructions don't do as good a job of advertising this as they
should, but it doesn't seem to be a problem for people.
