Anyone know why zlib is not included in the Alpine nginx packages?

Hi all,

Normally nginx's configure script includes zlib like so:

--with-zlib=../zlib-1.2.11

Basically, it's just pointing nginx to wherever zlib is installed. None of the Alpine nginx packages include this, which is confusing. Anyone know why?

For example, here's the nginx build script from from the 3.5 branch: https://git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/aports/tree/main/nginx/APKBUILD?h=3.5-stable
