A few days ago I compiled a program using Compress::Zlib (CheckGmail)
but ended up forgetting to submit the recipes (shame on me). I just
looked at the other Perl recipes you sent and they look fine, though I
used an older version of Compress::Zlib (1.42) -- maybe there's a
version incompatibility somewhere?

I'm submitting my recipes to the -recipes list now. It might be worth
trying out the older Compress::Zlib and see if it helps.
