Smile zlib 1.2.5 installation issues

Hi I'm running Debian squeeze with intel composer compiler for fortran and c. Now Im trying to install the zlib libray, but when Im configuring it , I got this:

./configure --prefix=/dados/curso/lib/zlib-1.2.5

Checking for shared library support...
Tested icc -w -c -O ztest31822.c
Tested cc -shared -O -o ztest31822.o
/usr/bin/ld: ztest31822.o: relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against undefined symbol `getchar@@GLIBC_2.2.5' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
No shared library support; try without defining CC and CFLAGS
Building static library libz.a version 1.2.5 with icc.
Checking for off64_t... Yes.
Checking for fseeko... Yes.
Checking for unistd.h... Yes.
Checking whether to use vs[n]printf() or s[n]printf()... using vs[n]printf().
Checking for vsnprintf() in stdio.h... Yes.
Checking for return value of vsnprintf()... Yes.

What is the real problem?, How could I follow the directions:
"recompile with -fPIC" and "try without defining CC and CFLAGS"?

Thanks in advance!

` what language are you trying to do this in? If you notice this symbol may be your error ` Check the commands that you ran. Hopefully you can see the symol at beginning of my post or the 1 marked in red.
