Trouble building mkfs.jffs2

Building mkfs.jffs2 after copying the content of the mtd distribution into
my kernel build tree, I get:

cd util
compr_zlib.c:15:2: #error "The userspace support got too messy and was
removed.  Update your mkfs.jffs2".

Has this been fixed?  Any suggestions?

Related question: how do you build your initial JFFS2 images?  I am also
trying to loopback mount a JFFS2 for a PPC machine on an i386 Red Hat 7.3
after loading JFFS2 modules, but no luck so far.

Help greatfully received.
