Not a review yet but the Solaris folks reported such a problem in Feb 2017
and the theory then was that they had zlib-ng, not regular zlib :
There, it recently introduced a function named inflateValidate(), and
libpng 1.6.26 uses thes this function if zlib identifies itself as
version ≥ 0x1821. zlib-ng is version 0x128f, but doesn't come with
inflateValidate(), so libpng doesn't compile.
