ok.. sorry.. quick fix on a Friday afternoon :)

-snip-.. now to libz

After further investigation, it turns out that I needed to pass an
LDFLAGS parameter to the configure line. My other architectures
(Solaris 2.6/8, AIX 4.3.1, Redhat 6.2/7.1) had been
happy with:

env R_PAPERSIZE=letter CPPFLAGS="-I/msrc/apps/include"
	./configure --prefix=/afs/msrc.pnl.gov/files/apps/R-1.3

But in the linking phase I then get the -L/msrc/apps/lib as the last of
the -L flags, so I end up getting the /usr/lib/libz.a instead of the one I
have stashed in /msrc/apps/lib/libz.a

adding a LDFLAGS="-L/msrc/apps/lib" to the above configure fixes the
problem I was having.
