I grabbed the source from GIT, installed the required packages and run
and I got the error message: "no suitable ZLIB version" , after the "checking
for library containing zlibVersion" line:
checking if more special flags are required for pthreads
checking for boostlib >= 1.37
checking whether the Boost::Thread library is available
checking for exit in -lboost_thread-mt
checking whether the boost thread library is usable
checking for sin in -lmkl
checking for sin in -lm
checking for clock_gettime in -lrt
checking whether to use the ZLIB library
checking for library containing zlibVersion
I was puzzled, because I had zlib1g-dev installed, and I lost some time (I even
tried to reinstall the package) before realizing, peeking inside the config.log,
that the error message was wrong.
What happened was that the C program used by that particular test (library
containing zlibVersion) failed because an unrelated error: it could not link the
-lboost_system (I guess that should have been tested somewhere before)
After running "apt-get install libboost-all-dev" it all went ok.
I think this is a bug in the configure script.
