Remove dummy structure declarations for old buggy compilers.
While woolly mammoths still roamed the Earth and before Atlantis sunk into the ocean, there were C compilers that could not handle forward structure references, e.g. "struct name;". zlib dutifully provided a work-around for such compilers. That work-around is no longer needed, and, per the recommendation of a security audit of the zlib code by Trail of Bits and TrustInSoft, in support of the Mozilla Foundation, should be removed since what a compiler will do with this is technically undefined. From the report: "there is no telling what interactions the bug could have in the future with link-time optimizations and type-based alias analyses, both features that are present (but not default) in clang."
