Reason for the zlib-1.dll:
This version fixes a potential security problem, see details here. Any
software that is linked against or derived from an earlier version of zlib
should be upgraded immediately. A partial list of over 500 applications

I'm fine with using the new version. The question remains: How do we accomplish this?

(Probably) libpng is linked against zlib.dll, so with the current setup we have to use the Z library with this name. A work-around, that I don't like however, is to rename the dll. Recompiling every and all libraries I neither like, though, as it is not as easy like on Unix.
