BUG(configure): "--without-included-zlib" behaves OPPOSITELY

I found the bug in the configure script when I executed it
for building GnuPG-1.2.6. This bug remains also in the
version 1.2.7.

The '--without-included-zlib' configure option does behave
OPPOSITELY (just like '--with-included-zlib'). If I specify
this option '--without-included-zlib' explicitly, then it
shows the following:
checking whether included zlib is requested... yes

The option '--without-included-zlib' should NOT set GnuPG to
use the zlib in gnupg-1.2.6/zlib regardless of the default.

For the time being, we can avoid this behavior by applying
the following patch:
