Thanks for the feedback Karl. 

All the failures valgrind has found are in the zlib source that I just copied from the main zlib-1.2.8 source distribution.

The has been a lot of work recently in the upstream zlib project to fix these type of issues. A new release of zlib (1.2.11) was made a few months ago that should address all of the valgrind issues.

Been waiting for the dust to settle on zlib 1.2.11 before I merge into my distribution.
