I did install zlib as a module and bypassed that error but bzip2-devel-1.0.6 asks for some new version of glibc that is a bit more fundamental. That glibc and that bzip2 It is default for CentOS 7. So I was thinking if there is a way to install bzip2-devel as module as well but could not find the source.
