No need to compromise for an older version.  I have just uploaded to
the ezwinports site the latest zlib 1.2.8 built for Windows without
any dependencies on libgcc DLL.  You can find it here:


Assuming none of your other libraries explicitly depend on libz-1.dll,
you should be fine, because Emacs prefers zlib1.dll to libz-1.dll
(assuming they are in the same directory), and the optional libraries
we recommend all depend on zlib1.dll also.
