cvs 1.11.2 and zlib

I noticed that cvs 1.11.2 (latest stable version) uses an internal static version
of zlib. This is a waste if you have the shared library installed IMO, so I used
the attached patch to link cvs against the system zlib. The patch was taken from
the debian diff. I think that the BLFS book should mention this patch, since zlib
is a part of LFS now.
