First you should have the .so - library file (f.e. and a .a file
(libz.a) in one of your lib/ path's. Look into /etc/ to see
wether it is automaticaly used by linker.

Go to Project -> Options -> Linker Options in KDevelop and add "-lz" to
the line at the bottom (without quotes).
The string behind "-l" depends on the name of your .a file - just cut
"lib" & ".a".

Now include the needed header file in your sources and use it's functions.
