Comment(by willimm):

 Replying to [comment:4 gespinasse]:
 > That's wrong to fix the static compilation when you want perl linked to
 shared lib, no?
 > Compiler automaticly take the static libz.a when the shared libz.so is
 not found or the link to libz.so.1.2.5 is bad.
 > At least I saw that with 5.10.1 when I made a mistake on the shared lib
 Really, just accept the fact that even though you can hack Perl to use the
 shared version of Zlib, lets face it, other packages might use libz.a and
 on 64-bit systems, if static libs are not compiled with -fPIC, then it
 won't build.
