[Devel] no zlib compression on 64bit system

Hi Jens,

there is a bug in libssl version 0.9.8:

     zlib compression does work correctly anymore in multi-process env. due
     problem with mem. allocation functions. Fix: disable compression.
     (see http://www.aet.tu-cottbus.de/rt2/NoAuth/Buglist.html - subscription is required)

openser automatically turns off the zlib compression for this version 
(and that warning is generated). Maybe you have different libssl version 
on the two machines; it has nothing to do with the architecture.
