That might be a good alternative. Let the presence of ZLIB_SOURCE
and/or BZIP2_SOURCE on Windows indicate that the tests should be run;
otherwise, skip 'em. Having regression testers tweak their
configurations is dangerous business: As Rene points out, users might
be rather confused when all of the regression tests run but they can't
build the library for themselves.
