Not necessary (except for testers).  Trivial for the developer to
create (along with many similar testing modules - instead of building
the BuildBin target, use BuildAll target.

zlib1.dll doesn't come from Microsoft, it's quite necessary.  (I can't
imagine you don't ship it?!?)  It's used by mod_deflate, and also by
openssl 0.9.8 - we anticipate most 2.2 users to use that version as it
was current when Apache 2.2.0 was first released.

In 2.0 we anticipated 0.9.7 which doesn't enable zlib by default, and
we had compiled the required zlib 1.1.x sources into mod_deflate.
