That bug looks unrelated to embedded-zlib.  It's about statically linking
with Pascal libraries included in FPC.

The problem with embedded-zlib appears to be a false positive in Lintian.
It seems to be triggering on the string:

    "Seek in deflate compressed stream failed."

although I don't see how that would match the regex that Lintian is using.
I can't find any other occurance of "inflate" or "deflate" in the strings
for easymp3gain, though.

You should override this Lintian tag for right now until we can figure out
what's going on.
