Compiling libwww from Amaya 2.4 src on Solaris 2.5.1

I am trying to build Amaya on a Solaris 2.5.1 system.

I have executed 'configure' and 'make all' and there appears to be an
error during the build of libwww because it can't find zlib.h.  The
only place I see zlib.h in the distribution is in the libpng
directory.  Is that where libwww is supposed to get this header or is
it supposed to be in a system area?  

Any suggestions for easily coercing the build into finding the
zlib files?

I am using gmake 3.74 and gcc 2.7.2.

I noticed that configure is run for libwww.  I changed some options for
configure when executing it in the Amaya directory.  Could that be
causing such problems?  The arguments I used were
        --prefix=/home/magill/bin/Amaya/Amaya \
        --with-amaya \
        --enable-plugin \
        --x-includes=/usr/openwin/include \
        --x-libraries=/usr/openwin/lib\
        --with-motif_includes=/usr/dt/include \
        --with-motif_libraries=/usr/dt/lib\

The following is the output of make just before the error messages:

(cd .libs && rm -f libwwwutils.la && ln -s ../libwwwutils.la libwwwutils.la)
