Compile of OpenSSH 3.7.1p2 failing - TRU64 5.1A

	I looked and no, I do not have zlib.[a|so] in my library path.
After looking in the /usr/local/include directory, where I believe the
compiler was looking, I have the following files:

drwxr-xr-x   2 root     system      8192 Oct 15 18:51 .
drwxr-xr-x  13 root     system      8192 Feb  3  2003 ..
-rw-r--r--   1 root     system      7810 Jan  4  2003 zconf.h
-rw-r--r--   1 root     system     40900 Oct 15 18:49 zlib.h

I hope this was the information that you were looking for.  If it isn't, let
me know.

Thanks again,
Trevor Strickland

Configure searches for the library.  If configure doesn't find it in the
system library patch, the next place it looks is /usr/local/.

You have a zlib.[a|so] in your normal system library path?

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
