It doesn't look like there was a bump for libz.  The import was done on
2004-06-22, and the next version bump (to 502120) was done on 2004-07-02,
so that is probably the safest one to use.  People running a -current
system built between 06-22 and 07-02 will get the "you have a too-old
zlib" error even though it's up-to-date, but I don't think there are
too many of those :)
