./configure cannot find zlib

I am trying to compile openssh on a Red Hat 5.2 system with the zlib
rpm installed.  For some reason when I run ./configure it gives me the
error that I must install zlib first.

it is here:
# ls /usr/lib/libz*
/usr/lib/libz.so.1@      /usr/lib/libz.so.1.1.3*

The RPM seems to only work on RH6.x, so I downloaded the src
rpm...which I am guessing is already patched for compiling with Linux.

Any ideas?

The monopoly is broken!  Q5 Comm, LLC now registers domains for $25 for one year or $45 for two years.  Why pay Internic $70 for the same thing?
