No kidding.  

If just starting out I'd strongly recommend a current dev of 2.4 and
using the SWISH::API module.  I think you will like that interface
better and it's replacing the SWISHE module.  If you need something more
"official" I'll try and get out rc2 soon.  AFAIK, we just have a few
Win32 installer pains to iron out.

Anyway, are you sure you have zlib development packages installed?

Does this work?

$ cat t.c
int main( void )
  return 0;

$ gcc -lz t.c
