[rt-users] perl, modules & rh7 seem to be causing problems...

This is my first post to this list, and I'm sorry to say we're stuck.

I know this isn't specifically an "rt" issue, but I hope someone on this
list has come up with it before.

We're running RH7 Linux, and when we install Msql-Mysql-modules, using #
perl -MCPAN -e shell, if we say yes to MysqlPerl emulation, we get an
error "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz":

  Running Mkbootstrap for DBD::mysql ()
  chmod 644 mysql.bs

  Running make install
    make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
  Bundle summary: The following items in bundle Bundle::DBD::mysql had
  installation problems:
    Mysql DBD::mysql

If we install saying "no", the install works, but of course rt doesn't
<frown>.

Has anyone come up against this at all before?  Any ideas on where to
look?

All help appreciated.  Thanks.

Jeff
