Yep, I had the same thing. Looking at that account I have access to I see
that I installed zlib locally so I have a ~/local/include/zlib.h
IIRC, the problem is that he.net has the zlib library but not the header.
Argh. I complained about that one, too. ;)
No zlib.h file.
You need a matching header file for the library. So that's why I
installed my own version.
It would be probably just as easy to install zlib locally, for you, too.

At least I think that's how it's suppose to work ;)
