[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
  6" gcc -o ../blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.so  -shared
-L/usr/local/lib dbdimp.
  o mysql.o -L/usr/lib/mysql    -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lm -lz
  gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96 -lgcc

  Running make test

  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

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

All help appreciated.  Thanks.
