 As weird as this report sounds, it's actually an actual PHP bug.


 When some linux distributions compiled 32bit PHP with large file support,
 it'd cause the zlib functions to be incorrectly suffixed with `64`, a bug
 which took PHP almost 3 years to fix.

 Normally I'd say, wontfix, but given the amount of time that PHP had the
 issue, maybe we should consider a compat function wrapper.. The affected
 functions were: `gzopen, gzseek, gztell`. However, since it's the first
 report of issue, I'm not entirely sure if we should.
