: 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*

You need to install the zlib-devel package.

: Any ideas?

You might consider studying for the test again.  Installing the devel
packages is pretty basic stuff for a Red Hat platform, and something
you ought to know to claim an RHCE.
