Is this zlib version 1.0.4, Jul 24th, 1996?
That one is thread safe - it was one of the goals:

  zlib 1.0.4 is a general purpose data compression library.  All the code
  is reentrant (thread safe).  The data format used by the zlib library
  is described by RFCs (Request for Comments) 1950 to 1952 in the files 

And _many_ tools link against this lib.
