distutils fails sdist and bdist if zlib is not installed

If zlib is not installed, the GzipHandle PMC will not be installed with Parrot. distutils does not check this condition, it attempts to loadlib gziphandle, and when it cannot be found there is a cryptic unhandled exception.

distutils should attempt to detect the presence of gziphandle, and display a helpful error message if it cannot be found.
