Your zlib installation does not feature position-independent code (PIC).
You either need to reinstall zlib with PIC, or you need to incorporate
the zlib module statically into Python. I recommend to do the latter.
To do so, edit Modules/Setup.
Alternatively, remove your zlib installation, and use the one provided
by Sun, in /usr/lib.
