This does indeed look like the problem. For some reason, configure is
detecting zlib and enabling the appropriate parts of the code, but zlib
is not actually there (or at least not actually usable).

Where on your system is zlib.h? Does it in fact define those two terms?
If so, simply adding
(on my system, it'd be '--with-extraincdir=/usr/include', but that's
automatically searched anyway) to your ./configure command line ought to
fix the problem. If not, I don't know if I can help you - I know how I'd
go about working on the problem on my own machine, but I don't think I
can do that remotely.
