that's rather odd...  it would seem rather difficult to me to have a 
working system without a zlib library.  look for a file 
somewhere and make sure that it's in the libpath.  actually, 
will most likely be a symlink to (x.y.z is a version 
number) - make sure that it points to a valid file if it's a symlink.  i 
can't imagine a distro that doesn't have it installed in /lib or 
/usr/lib.  also make sure that you have the development package 
installed for zlib - for an RPM-based system that would be the 
zlib-devel or zlib-dev package, for debian i think zlib-dev.  tho if you 
got that far i think it's pretty safe to assume they're installed...
