[Snort-users] zlib and 2.8.6 problem on Ubuntu 8.04

I'm having trouble upgrading from 188.8.131.52 to 2.8.6. Snort errors out,
ERROR: /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf(200) => Invalid keyword 'compress_depth' for 'global' configuration.
I found the earlier thread suggesting adding --enable-zlib to the ./configure command, which I did. I still have the same problem. The output from configure shows, in part:
checking zlib.h usability... no
checking zlib.h presence... no
checking for zlib.h... no
Ubuntu has zlibg1, not good enough I guess. So, I installed zlib-1.2.5 into the default location /usr/local/zlib. The same problem remains in both configure and snort. I tried adding zlib to the path, no luck. I can get snort to run be commenting out compress_depth, decompress_depth and inspect_gzip from the http preprocessor statements, but it would be good to get it fixed.
Where should I install zlib so that configure can find it, or how do I tell configure where to find zlib?
