Rather than installing from source, the correct thing to do here
would be to install the bzip2 library "dev" package:

# apt-get install libbz2-dev

You can use dpkg to verify that it contains the files you

$ dpkg -L libbz2-dev

In the future, if you're looking for a development package, and
you don't know what to install, I'd recommed using the apt-file
utility. (install with "apt-get install apt-file")

First, make sure the file lists are up-to-date:

# apt-file update
[snip output]

Next, search by filename pattern:

# apt-file search bzlib.h
libbz2-dev: usr/include/bzlib.h

Similarly, you can use "apt-cache" to search package names and

Make sure the package lists are up-to-date:

# apt-get update
[snip output]

Search based on name/description:

$ apt-cache search bz2 development        
libbz2-dev - high-quality block-sorting file compressor library - development

Hope that helps in the future,
