Here I think the binutils/bfd/configure should check for ../../zlib,
which will be there in "gcc combined build", and use it, shouldn't it?
but of course then zlib needs to be built first etc.
maybe configure --help should have some support for AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS?
However, in this case it would still be missleading, because
binutils have --with-zlib (but no support for --with-system-zlib),
gcc has only (?) --with-system-zlib, so it seems to be let's say "incompatible"
