I'm trying to build the REXXSQL binaries from source files on my MandrakeLinux box. Unfortunately, the build stops with the following error message
gcc: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
when running 'make' after configuring the package with ./configure --with-db=mysql --with-rexx=regina
The configure utility does not complain of any missing libraries or header files.
Try installing zlib-devel.
