Thanks for notifying me.

I'd like to clarify one thing. Ed's suggested modification to 
cfitsio.SlackBuild removes most of the bundled zlib sources. I'm not 
sure this step is necessary, as the Fedora patch removes these source 
files from ZLIB_SOURCES variable in Makefile.in. Applying the patch 
seems to be enough to avoid compilation of these files.

By the way, cfitsio has just been updated to version 3.430. Fedora patch 
still applies, so I can include it in the next update.
