Description:
If operating system has outdated version of zlib or does not have it at all cmake finishes fine, but make will fail with failure like here:

Suggested fix:
Let cmake raise error

Noted in 5.5.31, 5.6.11, 5.7.1 changelogs.

CMake did not check whether the system zlib had certain functions 
required for MySQL, resulting in build errors. Now it checks and
falls back to the bundled zlib if the functions are missing.
