You can see on line 4(?) up there that ld(1) is complaining about
'cannot find -lz'; as in zlib.


It looks like you have zlib installed, but it may be hiding it's
libraries in an odd place... try doing a

	locate libz.so

to see where that is, and then you will have to update your Makefile for
that directory probably... using '-L /usr/lib' or whatever, as part of
the gcc arguments.

or maybe that can be done in the configure stage somewhere, I dunno
I'm lazy and it's ages since I've done it!
