ZLIB_SOURCE is enough. ZLIB_INCLUDE is actually
ignored if you pass ZLIB_SOURCE.

The problem is that the library name is not mangled, right?
This can be worked around by setting a <tag> rule that
does the mangling (with -s, it's added implicitly by

I just tried:

import boostcpp ;
using zlib : : <source>C:/path/to/zlib <tag>@boostcpp.tag ;

but that breaks because boostcpp.jam has bugs that
prevent it from being imported outside of Boost's
