OpenSSH rebuild warning: problems avoiding zlib problems in Solaris

OK, so there might be a way to exploit the zlib problems in OpenSSH.
I have primarily Solaris 7 & 8 systems, and I decided to build a new zlib
(in /usr/local/lib) and rebuild OpenSSH.
Following the directions in OpenSSH, I used a configure command
However, the resulting binaries still use Solaris' own copy of
of libz.so in /lib. Here is the ldd output of the new binary:
% ldd ssh
libz.so => /lib/libz.so
libsocket.so.1 => /lib/libsocket.so.1
libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1
libc.so.1 => /lib/libc.so.1
libdl.so.1 => /lib/libdl.so.1
libmp.so.2 => /lib/libmp.so.2
Modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not seem to help.
I have to dig into the makefiles, but I thought people might
want to know.
Replacing the Solaris /lib/libz.so library is undesirable, at least
at our site.
Convincing the OpenSSH build to use the PROPER libz in /usr/local/lib
is apparently no easy task.
Hope this helps,
