You need to build zlibmodule, now that you've installed zlib. You should
be able to do this by re-running the setup.py script in your Python build
python setup.py build
python setup.py install
If you haven't deleted your build directory, this should just build
zlibmodule.so, rather than all the dynamically loadable extensions.
