I'll probably add it before 1.5 ships.

As an aside, I don't think we should be changing the deps file for the 1.4

For those folks who don't have zlib installed and fetched the deps tarball, I
want them to have an easy path to getting zlib installed. But, yah, doing a
subdir-like configure would be good. It's probably a thing I can whip out at
the summit next month.
