Just a recap for myself and those just tuning in. Please correct me if 
I'm wrong:

* You tried building with -qt-zlib --> this failed (if so, please give 
us the corresponding log / build errors)

* You tried building without (i.e., defaulting to system-zlib) this 
failed with linking errors --> Mark Brand and I think this is a problem 
with your setup, as it works for us.

* Because of the first issue you forced the inclusion of Qt's zlib by 
specifiying it in the relevant gui.pro and network.pro files.

Seems to me the /real/ bug here is: Why doesn't Qt pick up the bundled 
zlib when it is told to. I will try to reproduce but since I'm building 
this on my grand-dads old pocket watch that will take a while.

Kind regards,
