These are the changes updating zlib from 1.2.8 to 1.2.10. It is only used when
building without a system zlib.  The new release includes fixes for security
issues CVE-2016-9840, CVE-2016-9841, CVE-2016-9842, CVE-2016-9843.

Checked with a build with disabled system-zlib. Ok for the trunk?
Were there any changes that we needed to carry forward or any changes you needed
to make to the upstream sources?

I backed out the changes to the configure* and Makefile* changes (and only
these), which are completely different to zlib upstream. There are no
additions/deletions to zlib source files, so these build changes still work with
the updated zlib.
One more note. I think that, in general, backing out local changes which don't have a strong need to be carried forward is absolutely the right thing to do. The less hacking we do on these libraries we pull from other sources, the better, IMHO.
