Review for Octave 6.

No progress for 4 years.

I thought about a solution like this, and maybe it is sufficient for now.

Longer term, I am thinking about simplifying the octave_stdiostream classes by hiding the difference between FILE and gzFile in a separate class.  Then we might be able to hide our use of zlib in a single file instead of having details of zlib spread over multiple files in Octave.

First attempt at removing zlib from the public Octave API.

I think this may fail to build when building without zlib, just posting for now to show my work. Building with zlib succeeds and all tests pass as before. Public header files no longer include zlib.h or need a HAVE_ZLIB macro.

This is related to bug #41027.
