... This is a known bug; it has been mentioned here before (when it bit me ;-) It wants to link against zlib, and you don't have the developer files (i.e. zlib-devel-blahblah.rpm) installed. Either upgrade to 0.9.10 (which wont link against zlib unless you tell ./configure to) or install zlib. Hope I got that right. /Jörgen -- // Jorgen Grahn \X/ <>
