This problem is like the duplicated zlib problematic for rsync and

No, it isn't.

Is a modified zlib a duplicate of zlib? Or is it is own fork?
The latter.

Or whatever?
It's bad design. A package which hacks around into commonly accepted and widely used system libraries is simply hacking around.

A proper design would "use zlib" without modifications, like many other applications do, or to ask zlib's upstream to adopt the changes.
