Oh, geez, I'm an idiot. I had tried this, and I couldn't figure out
why it wasn't working. It wasn't working because I forgot the "#"
metacharacter. I fixed the define, and now the code is no longer failing
there, but now it's failing to find zlib.h and then suffering a bunch of
casting errors and pointer dereferencing errors.
