I'd say yes. I presume without linking against zlib, SSH compression  
support won't be available via libssh. But I am just guessing.

With Python X2Go, I have disabled all compression features in  
Paramiko/SSH, because the compression should rather take place (and  
does) in NX. So dropping compression in SSH brings some server-side  
relaxation on the CPU, I hope. I did not do any benchmarking on this,  
though. With Telekinesis/mTelePlayer the subjective impression is that  
it speeds up things on large videos.
