==========================
And it seams as if zlib is the limitation here.
Unless we include the zlib source code into Git and redefine uLong,
is there a nice way around this:
===========================


/usr/include/zconf.h:#  define uLong                 z_uLong
/usr/include/zconf.h:#  define uLongf                z_uLongf
/usr/include/zconf.h:typedef unsigned long  uLong; /* 32 bits or more */
/usr/include/zconf.h:typedef uLong FAR uLongf;
Hmph.  Would ef49a7a0 ("zlib: zlib can only process 4GB at a time",
2011-06-10) and e01503b5 ("zlib: allow feeding more than 4GB in one
go", 2011-06-10) help us here, though?

That is good news.
I tried to replace all "unsigned long" with size_t and got that compiling
without warnings under Windows 64 bit.

Compiling this on a 32 bit Linux gave lots of warnings..

Converting all unsigned long into is probably an overkill.
Some may stay, some may be converted into off_t, and some size_t.

Does anybody wants to pick this up?
