Description monnier+lists/redhat/bugs 1999-06-25 20:36:57 UTC
ldd /usr/bin/cvs shows that cvs was compiled without
the shared zlib.  It would make more sense to use the
shared library rather than link zlib statically in the
The same seems to apply to the various XFree86 servers
as well as the xfs font server who are able to read .gz
files but don't use the shared library.
Oh and also rsync.

zlib is small enough (about 20k-30k) that this isn't a problem.
