I had what seems to be the exact same problem, installing ShortRead in a conda environment. I was able to solve the problem for myself, so I hope this can help others having the same issue.
Long story short, this error seems to happen with zlib v1.2.11 but not zlib v1.2.8. So I made sure my environment was using this version:
$ conda create -n myenv zlib=1.2.8
After this, installing ShortRead worked fine.
$ source activate myenv
Note that it might be possible to downgrade zlib:
$ conda install -c anaconda zlib=1.2.8
However, in my case this broke some other packages, which is why I had to create an entirely new environment. Hope this helps.
