Use system zlib on Mac OS X
The attached patch allows us to use system zlib on Mac OS X. All versions of Mac OS X that we support have zlib as a system library. In Mac OS X 10.4 and later, the system zlib is version 1.2.3, which is the latest release and the same version as the zlib in the NSS source tree. Firefox 3 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. The reason we need to change the signtool and modutil makefiles is that we can't add -lz to EXTRA_LIBS because $(PROGRAM) depends on $(EXTRA_LIBS) in mozilla/security/coreconf/rules.mk: $(PROGRAM): $(OBJS) $(EXTRA_LIBS) ... gmake on Linux apparently has an extension that interprets a dependency of -lz as /usr/lib/libz.so. But gmake on Mac OS X tries to make -lz (as expected) and fails. So we have to add -lz to OS_LIBS instead.

This change by itself doesn't affect Mozilla because Mozilla doesn't build modutil and signtool. When I check in the makefile patch in bug 275744, this change will affect Mozilla because lib/ssl will depend on zlib, but Mozilla can build NSS with NSS_ENABLE_ZLIB= (unsetting NSS_ENABLE_ZLIB) to turn it off. I checked in the patch on the NSS trunk (NSS 3.12.6).
