1.2.x, but yes.

Actually, I fix up the the Apache build scripts for mod_deflate. I plan
to submit a patch to Apache to use zlib-1.2.x on Windows. 1.1.x is very
old. and several security bugs have been fixed since then.

Yes, you'll always get a zlib project, but if you don't tell gen_make.py
--with-zlib, that project won't build by default (it won't be a
dependency of neon).

Yah, sorry about the Apache weirdness... but as a bonus, you don't have
to build by hand zlib any more (*and* you can create a _real_ debug
build without warnings about CRT mismatches :)
