Hi Chris,

sorry for the late reply, I’ve been traveling.

This file is copied from the zlib source distribution as it is in
Debian, but not available in the zlib1g-dev package. There, the
generating crc32.c file can be found. The zlib package does not seem to
actually re-generate the crc32.h file when building, though.

Should I 
 * Refer to that location?
 * Copy the .c file and dependencies to my local debian/ directory?
 * Do something else?
