docker: purge zlib1g-dev

zlib1g-dev package is installed by ruby:2.6-slim, our upstream base. The installation of this package pulls in linux-libc-dev by way of transitive deps. None of these packages are required at runtime. Kernel binary packages are problematic because they tend to trigger security warnings in our automated tooling. (It’s a bit silly to be shipping container images with kernel packages, anyway.)

See internal topic 34843 for more context.

cvulnscan was clean on an image built from this commit.
