You were close. It appears that flate.c was using the wrong config.h header. It was
reading one from /usr/local/include, and therefore not getting any defines. If I
manaully add the define HAVE_ZLIB_H to flate.c or add the full path to config.h it
The problem should be solvable by ensuring that the first "-I" flag looks in
grass/src/include instead of picking other config.h files.
