Description of problem:
Got the above error message when I run Google Chrome or any other application that requires version information in libz.so.1.

I am submitting in regard to libz.so.1 without version information available, but not the difficulties of using chrome. Users should have same error if they run an application that requires version information on libz.so.1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 6.
2. Install all packages needed.
3. Install Google Chrome from a 3rd party repo.
3. Start Google Chrome.
It starts with the error message:

/lib64/libz.so.1: no version information available

google-chrome-beta-5.0.307.7-38400.x86_64 at least doesn't crash any more, but the error message ist still there.

This is probably the same problem as in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=431124, the fix sounds to be quite small.

If you could kindly patch it on Fedora that would be fantastic. if you decide to let be then that's alright. Thanks very much for your help.
