Thanks for you help thus far, though I am still stuck.  I have tried a
number of things with no success.  Modifying the actual command that
builds the zlibmodule to link to other sources produces different
errors, such as "build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.5/ undefined symbol:
inflateEnd".  Will update this thread if I find a solution.
