Comment(by willimm):

 Replying to [comment:6 gespinasse]:
 > To my knowledge, there is only 2 packages that use libz.a. That's
 binutils and module-init-tools durings tests. For module-init-tools test,
 with one sed it is possible to change m-i-t to test the dynamic version
 that we use at the place of the static version that we try not to use..
 Just keep in mind that packages outside of LFS/BLFS sometimes link aganst
 the static version of Zlib. To make a permanent solution for this 64-bit
 issue, just build Zlib with CFLAGS="-fPIC -mstackrealign" and don't worry
 about solutions for other packages.
