Tested with and without libminizip on my box.

On my platform it does not take into account that libminizip is present
(the .pc for pkg-config is not present). So it uses libs/unzip instead
of minizip.

2 small points: zip_accessdemux.h is a bad name, as this is neither a
demux nor an access_demux (yes, my fault on the ZIP_ACCESSDEMUX_H macro).
And we check at least 3 times for the header zlib.h, we should check only
once and then use HAVE_ZLIB (see one of Remi's previous mails).
