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...
