I'm aware that this query may be too specific for this group, however if 
anyone has any RELEVANT information, it would be greatly appreciated.
(I have RhinoSkin Xtinguisher, so I'm flameproof).

I'm running Redhat 8.0
and I'm installing apache, php, mysql, postgres, openssl etc.

my first step is to install mysql.
I want it to be perl enabled, which means I have downloaded,
(this is in compliance with the INSTALL BINARY doc that comes with mysql),,


Data-Dumper and DBI installed OK, 
then I start mysql and 
try to install Msql-Mysql-modules.

However I get an error when doing a make, the error is

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

thanks in advance

christmas cheers,
