ssteiner at ubuntu:~/distutils-builbot$ aptitude search zlib

p   zlib-bin                                                  -  
compression library - sample programs
p   zlib-gst                                                  - Zlib  
bindings for GNU Smalltalk
i   zlib1g                                                    -  
compression library - runtime

p   zlib1g-dev                                                -

p   zlibc                                                     - An on- 
fly auto-uncompressing C library

# sudo aptitude install zlib-bin zlib-dev zlib-dbg zlibc

Not sure if they're all needed...

l'll rebuild as soon as I know where to get the changes.
