Have you tried downloading and building with make?
There may be missing dependencies to zlib itself.
I know that you don't use FreeBSD; but, the following information may be useful to you.
Go to http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html and type qemu in the search bar.
All of the dependencies are there. You can use the same search engine to ee what dependencies those dependencies require. The search can also be used for zlib and its dependencies. Just use it for a reference.

you dont have zlib headers installed. If you didnt install zlib from source, go to your package manager and look for zlib-dev package.

But i tried installing zlib twice.

# whereis zlib.*
zlib: /usr/include/zlib.h /usr/share/man/man3/zlib.3.gz

Did you rerun ./configure, or what ever qemu uses to generate its Makefiles?

Download and build zlib from source.
Have you built the headers for zlib?
shpenat was right, try the dev package.
What distro are you currently compiling qemu for?

The configure script error doesn't say it the problem is finding the header or the lib itself.
Do you have a /usr/lib/libz.so and/or /usr/lib/libz.a ?

Also you may do well to rm config.cache (IIRC), or even restart with a freshly untarred source dir.

Are the kernel headers available for DSL?
If not, you're going to need to add an apt-get repository which has them.

DSL is better as a guest; but, I also thought that the live version had qemu installed as a package.

Did you try with a fresh source tree? Or maybe even regenerating the configure script with autoconf?

I had a google and there seem to be many instances of people having problems with qemu builds finding zlib ... hmm.

Wierd...
Code:
#include <zlib.h>
int main(){
printf("%s", (zlibVersion()));
}
->
Code:
# GCC _pest.c -lz
_pest.c:4:2: warning: no newline at end of file
#./a.out
