I've unsuccessfully tried to compile AIDE ver 0.7 on my LFS 3pre1 box, but
it always dies... so if someone could take a look at this and give me some
pointers I would much apprecaite it.

this is what I do to configure/compile it

./configure --with-zlib --with-gnu-regexp && make

and this is what it tells me (which I don't really understand what it

	<SNIP stuff that compiles ok>

gcc  -g -O2 -static -o aide  conf_yacc.o conf_lex.o getopt.o getopt1.o
gnu_regex.o error.o db.o commandconf.o db_file.o db_lex.o db_sql.o
gen_list.o list.o do_md.o base64.o symboltable.o compare_db.o be.o util.o
aide.o crypt/libcipher.a -lcrypt -lz
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
