Update to reflect the replacement of "--enable-zlib"/"--disable-zlib"
with "--with-zlib"/"--without-zlib", and the added support for "--with-zlib=DIR". Update to reflect the replacement of "--disable-snmp" with "--without-ucdsnmp". Note "--without-pcap" is what you'd use to build on a system without libpcap. Fix some typos. svn path=/trunk/; revision=5153
