I found libz.so.1.0.2 in the FreeBSD 2.1.7 packages.

   pub/packages_2.1.7/devel/libz

I downloaded that, did a pkg_add (actually pkg_manage), and then
created a link for libz.so.2.0.
  ln -s /usr/local/lib/libz.s0.1.0.2 /usr/local/lib/libz.so.2.0
I think this will work.  It has for other libs.

I found the source for libz 1.0.4 in the FreeBSD 2.2.2 source tree.
The Makefile does not create the libz.so, only libz.a and libz.pa!

I was unable to find the real libz.so.2.0, if it ever existed.

Looks like libz is being dropped from newer versions of FreeBSD
for some reason!
