Larry,

Apache has many optional modules that can be enabled. Some must be built at compile time or
they do not exist while others are built by default and yet others can be downloaded from
other sites. mod_ssl and mod_deflate require source that is obtained separately, so it is
not included by default.

It is the server owner who decides what modules to use. mod_deflate is an optional module.
Like mod_ssl, mod_deflate must be built at compile time. To to do this the zlib source is
placed into the srclib directory - the makefile finds this source and builds mod_deflate.
The module must still be properly enabled in the httpd.conf.

Though I am referring to the Apache for Windows build, I suspect that this applies to the
*nix builds as well.
