This was helpful

  "When do I need zlib in OpenSSL?"

'no-comp' disables ALL compression, including any zlib comp; seems 
that's the recommendation there.

I ended up with

   ./config ... no-comp no-zlib no-zlib-dynamic ...

leaving out 'no-bio' until at least v1.1.0 release.

No errors/warnings on the build.  Other than the 'make depend' noise; 
that's another thread.
