Requests library depends on PHP zlib

Description

Currently the Requests library checks for zlib in some locations, but not others, before using it.

This means it's possible to get a fatal error because gzinflate() is undefined, for example when trying to fetch content from the WordPress.org API.

Specifically noticed in compatible_gzinflate(), at line 947.

I'm thinking this should be closed as reported-upstream once a report is filed on WordPress/Requests.

@Clorith are you able to confirm if this issue still exists and file an issue over there if so?
