By the way ... Sun will NOT be producing a patch for zlib.  Its Freeware
so they don't patch those.  I checked with Sun when the zlib problem
surfaced earlier this week.  You should not count on overriding the old
version of zlib, but instead uninstall and then reinstall the new pkg.

This is a bit annoying, as zlib lives in the SUNWzlib and SUNWzlibx
packages that come on the Software Disc 2 of Solaris 8.  Both the
package names and locations would normally imply it was supported.

On the other hand, the only Sun-distributed products that depend
on it are on the (explicitly unsupported) Companion Software CD.

I'll check with Sun this afternoon and see what they tell me.
