actually ./configure then dies due to wanting a later zlib
version than is available
checking if zlib version >= 1.2.5... no
checking whether zlib support suffices... configure: error:
zlib library and headers are required
[root at centos-6 ~]# rpm -qa zlib\*
There is not any easy workaround within the four corners of
RHEL / CentOS 6 series. a 'difficult' workaround is the 'scl'
extensions to permit carrying around later libraries on a
binary by binary basis, later package versions along side of
the 'normal' ones present, but this is out of scope here --
As I recall there is a miling list, or failing that, the
centos-devel mailing list (referenced at the foot of that
page) would be monitored by people who 'live and breathe'
those picky details
