New Revision: 237464

  MFC r237348:
  Currently the code uses gzFile * for a zlib file descriptor, which
  is not correct.  The code works by accident because gzFile is
  currently defined as void *, and internally it would be casted from
  or to its real type.
  A newer version of zlib will instead define it as a pointer to a
  specific type pointer (namely, struct gzFile_s *).  This therefore
  would cause stricter checks and compiler would catch this type
  This change does not cause any changes to the resulting binary,
  as validated with md5(1).
