Looks good.  Go ahead and check this in.

I don't get this one.  My version of Makefile.in doesn't have a blank line
before the "zlib" here.  I've changed this to $(ZLIB) anyway since that
is more consistent.

I saw this at one point when I was building cinstall.  I thought it came
from running make in the zlib directory rather than letting it be handled
by the cinstall Makefile.  I didn't get around to changing the zlib Makefile
to correctly set all of the includes so I used the tried-and-true devo technique
of relying on the fact that it was being run from a higher-level directory.

Can you try doing a "make clean all" in the cinstall directory and see if that
"fixes" things?
