Thanks for the patch! The patch looks good to me, but I have one
question -- those tests used to pass before, at least for
some msvc testers. Do you know what made them fail now? Was that
a change in Jamfile (I don't remember making any), or bzlib/zlib
has changed.

"No idea" is fine for an answer, but if you know for sure, it
would be even better ;-)

I think this patch is something we should apply, as otherwise
functionality of iostream library will some somewhat limited
in msvc/(source libz) configuration. What do you think?
