In 0.1.11 the configure script claims to not find
uncompress in -lz. Investigating configure.log, I
noticed that there was an undefined refernce to pow()
that caused that error to be reported. Simply including
-lm in $LIBS
(in file configure on line 3647 on my system) takes
care of that issue.
The line now looks like this: LIBS="-lz -lm $LIBS"
Could be worth checking out.
