The problem is fairly simple, but I can't give a complete fix since I
don't have an Ubuntu 8.04 system handy.

The root of it is that you have the files zlib needs to run, but not the
files you need to compile applications which use zlib.  These are
probably going to be found in something named zlib-dev, or something
similar.  (E.g., on my Ubuntu 8.10 system I think it's actually named

"sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev" might be useful to you, assuming it's
named the same on an 8.04 system.
