[mythtv] mythgame compilation error

Mythgame won't compile for me.  I tracked the problem down to the use of 
the 'OF' macro in unzip.h.  This apparently assumes an older version of 
zlib than I have on my system.  The macro has been renamed to '_Z_OF' in 
the newer version of the library.

A quick and dirty work-around is to patch the Makefile to add 
'-DOF=_Z_OF' to both CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS, but the real solution would be 
to detect the zlib version and set it correctly either way (or just use 
the new version of the macro and require a newer zlib).
