Hi everyone,
I tried to install kdevelop 1.4 beta2. I've started ./configure and got the 
"checking for libz... configure: error: not found. Check your installation 
and look into config.log"

In config.log is written:
configure:4502: gcc -o conftest -O2     conftest.c   -lz  1>&5
configure:4495:17: zlib.h: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
#line 4493 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"


int main() {
return (zlibVersion() == ZLIB_VERSION); 
; return 0; }

the file confdefs.h is in the install directory which I put in the $PATH.
What should I do?
