System:- Slackware 9.1 (Linux 2.4.22)- attempting to install pdns-2.9.14

Following on from my Previous posting, having the problem compiling.. I 
realised I had incorrectly listed the directories in the ./configure 
line. I was however inserting the full path in the shell.

Anyway, thanks to a friend.. I have managed to overcome this problem.

I now have a different problem, when I attempt to compile with the 
following configure line:-

./configure --with-modules="gmysql" --enable-pdns-server 

(I am assuming here that it is necessary to include the 
--enable-pdns-server and --enable-recursor lines are necessary to 
achieve an operational DNS server with a recursor? Are they installed as 
standard? .. If so what exactly do these options do? This is not 
explained too clearly)

I receive the error lines:-

In function `my_compress_alloc':
: undefined reference to `compress'
In function `my_uncompress':
: undefined reference to `uncompress'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [pdns_server] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/downloads/pdns-2.9.14/pdns'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/downloads/pdns-2.9.14/pdns'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/downloads/pdns-2.9.14'
make: *** [all] Error 2

This problem is not 2.9.14 specific, as I received the same error when 
trying to install 2.9.13.

Any clues as to what's wrong here would be most appreciated. Thank you.
