I have a libz/zlib-related problem with Solaris 8.

To compile with zlib, I need to do "./configure --with-zlib=/usr" but
that creates a problem when compiling testDocbook.c and other files
that use fprintf, etc. because the addition of "-I/usr/include" on the
gcc command line causes the inclusion of some Solaris-specific header
files that gcc can't use.

You shouldn't need to do this. You shouldn't even need --with-zlib. I
just built libxml-2.4.5.tar.gz under Solaris 8/SPARC with Sun Forte C
5.3 by doing:
  $ ./configure --enable-shared --enable-static --prefix=[blah]
and had no problems with zlib.

Please post the relevant portion of config.log so I can take a look at
the error.
