Re: zlib.h file missing

From: Esther Lau <esther3lau(at)>

 Actually, I tried running ./configure again, and it gave the same rror, about the zlib.h missing file.
Actually, yeah, there were some other missings file too, but I had downloaded previous versions, and therefore had manually copied the files over to this release.
Thanks for you help, I will download the 2002-06-08 release and hopefully I'll have better luck w/ that one. :)
Thanks again.

Yes, something wrong with the Makefile. How did you configure? What
did configure say about zlib.h? I probably need to change the configure
script a bit. It sounds like it thinks it found zlib.h and libz but
didn't add them to the Makefile.

I just noticed that some files were missing from 2002-06-06 snapshot. 
So, it wouldn't have built anyway. :-(

Let me know about configure and hopefully the 2002-06-08 snapshot will
be usable by you. :-)

Hrm, definitely odd...
