Hi all,
Thank you for your help.

  It's so obvious..I was so stupid!
I did not look enough carefully to see the file "/usr/lib/libz.a" ...
The only reason  I have to forgive my self is that when I did search and
post my question, I was so f%$# tired and dead meet.

Actually I already know how to add additional static libs. Thus,
next time I'll wait and rest before getting in panic and cry for help
that's it: "-lz" ... doh!

Forgive me, ...etc...
Best regards,
Serge Lussier
