I am trying to install mysql-3.23.47-pc-gnu-i686 ; apache-1.3.22 and php-4.1.1 when I type # ]./configure --with-mysql=../mysql --with-apxs=/www/apache/bin/apxs --with-zl

I get this warning:
checking for crypt in -lcrypt... yes

Configuring extensions
checking if the location of ZLIB install directory is defined... no
checking whether to include ZLIB support... yes
configure: error: Cannot find libz

And this causes apache not to start

Please help me I have serched and found similar problems but not many if any solutions.  I am also in a learning process in linux
