RE: 7.11 build on aix 5.2

This is a flaw in AIX, not the configure script. AIX contains the proper libraries, but does not contain the associated header files. Therefore, one either has to build zlib and run the configure script with --with-zlib=/path/to/your/zlib or disable zlib.

This happens because the configure script detects zlib present and activates
that, but when it later compiles a source that needs it, the proper include
file is not found/read. This is indeed a minor flaw in the configure script.
(If you can figure out more details or even provide a patch, I'm interested.)

You can work around this in two ways:

1. make sure the compiler finds the zlib header file when you compile

or

2. run configure with the proper option to disable the zlib usage
