zlib is compiled into binaries... The only dynamic libraries are

 ldd /users/kaja/texlive/bin/sparc-sun-solaris2.7/pdftex
        libm.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libm.so.1
        libc.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libc.so.1
        libdl.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/libdl.so.1

Could someone (who is not Ross or Kaja) try it out under solaris 2.7 too?
