As promised on mailing list "Building on Windows: zlib library names in winbuild/MakeBuild.vc" this PR means can build on Windows with zlib without needing to modify zlib library names.
Check for existence of import and static libraries with documented names and use them if they do. Fallback to previous names.
According to https://github.com/madler/zlib/blob/master/win32/README-WIN32.txt on Windows, the names of the import library is "zdll.lib" and static library is "zlib.lib".
