Description of problem:
I am getting a link error when trying to use gcj:

[mth@hucho bm]$ gcj Rbm.java
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
[mth@hucho bm]$

Anthony Green <green@redhat.com> suggested that I do 'update zlib', but my zlib
is up to date. 

Red Hat 9 with all packages installed from the distribution.
System was upgraded from Red Hat 8 within a few days of the rh9 release. 
gcc works fine. 

I tried reinstalling packages ... no joy

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc-java-3.2.2-5, binutils-, zlib-1.1.4-8

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 9.0
2. Install gcc-java
3. gcj MyTestProgram.java

Actual Results:  /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Expected Results:  :)

Additional info:

This is my first attempt to use gcj.
Don't think I've done anything wrong.
Comment 1 Michael 2003-05-22 05:17:03 EDT
Someone on <java@gcc.gnu.org> suggested that I install zlib-devel. 

I installed zlib-devel-1.1.4-8 from the rh9 distribution. 

Issue seems to be resolved. 

Shouldn't this be a dependency in the rpms?
