Need linking zlib to avoid crash

Bug Description

If libsent is built without zlib, it uses popen() for reading .gz file (See libsent/src/util/gzfile.c). So, using libsent in multi-thread progam is potentially dangerous because fork() in the sub-thread may cause crash or dead-lock.

I confirmed the crash actually happens to some multi-thread programs.

Please add zlib1g-dev to Build-Depends.
