 I have downloaded VLC from Haiku Optional Packages website

 When i attempt to start VLC on Haiku PM, i get the following error:
 "Missing library libz.so"
 I can see that inside "/boot/system/lib" there are present "libz.so.1.2.8"
 and "libz.so.1", and if i link libz.so.1.2.8 as libz.so (but inside a lib
 folder under the VLC installation directory, since "/system/lib" is read-
 only) i am able to properly run VLC.

 In the regular branch of Haiku, libz.so (linked from libz.so.1.2.7) is
 present under /system/lib
