Any Help would be GREATLY apperciated!!
You should be able to get what you need by installing the libid3tag0 package at least that is what is named in Debian.
apt-cache search libid3tag
libid3tag0 - ID3 tag reading library from the MAD project
libid3tag0-dev - ID3 tag reading library from the MAD project
For your error on the configure if you still want to install from source you would need zlib1g-dev again in Debian, you may want to install the apt-file package and search for yourself. It works like apt-get in that you apt-file update
as root then can apt-file search missing/file.h
as normal user.
apt-file search zlib.h
