Yes, we do include zlib, but I don't think that is a precedent we should follow.
Including such third party libraries is potentially a large support burden and
source of conflict as those libraries get updated. It's already been a problem
with zlib. It's beyond the scope of what D should be to take this stuff on.
Instead, we should provide download links so the user can install it themselves
As for the auto tester breaking, a better approach might be to install curl on
the test system, or simply not run those tests.
