Replying to Chris Johns:

What about https://github.com/richgel999/miniz ?

This looks interesting. I am primarily looking for a compression library which can be used in fatal error handlers.

I use it in an open library for interfacing to Xray detectors. It looks like it is being maintained and I have a small patch for it to compile on the latest FreeBSD clang with full warnings.
