Actually, my zlib is completely non-standard and of zero use here. The end
result in terms of lib location and *.so links is the same as current LFS.

The only (minor) nit is that as we now have utils in the / that link against
zlib (the cramfs stuff), so according to FHS and common practice, we could
look at moving the runtime libs:-

to /lib

(but I haven't done this yet)
