It seems that RedHat in its "Vulnerability in zlib library" advisory 
has forgotten to write that a "rpm" program is staticly linked with zlib
and needs to be recompiled.
I have used find-zlib perl script  (linked from the zlib homepage )
to find out which programs use staticly linked zlib and got the
following output on "rpm" binary:
| rpm: inflate version: "1.1.3 Copyright 1995-1998 Mark Adler"
| rpm: zlib cplens table, little endian
| rpm: zlib cplext table (version 1.0.5 to 1.1.4)
I think it was never posted to BugTraq
find-zlib - scan for zlib tables in compiled code
