Yeah, looks like it. Sorry for that. I've got the autoconf-archive version supplied by debian testing, the package version is "20111221-1".

when the user gives neither --without-zlib nor --with-zlib=... on the
configure command line, the AX_CHECK_ZLIB() macro is supposed to check for
zlib in various default locations, however the macro simply prints the message "checking if zlib is wanted... yes" and does nothing else. no checks for zlib
are performed, and the HAVE_ZLIB variable is not set.

attached is a patch that fixes this. there are many different ways to fix it
depending on aesthetic preferences, this is just one suggestion.
