Postfix install: can't get past make.
 
Hi, I'm trying to install Postfix to work with MySQL and BDB (system is debian woody). It's going to be running with Cyrus (IMAP and SASL) to hopefully function as a mail server.

My problem is this, I'm trying to configure with
{
make makefiles 'CCARGS=-DHAS_MYSQL \
-I/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql -DUSE_SASL_AUTH \
-I/usr/local/include/sasl -I/usr/local/bdb/include' \
'AUXLIBS=-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql \
-lmysqlclient -lz -lm -L/usr/local/lib -lsasl2 -L/usr/local/bdb/lib'
}

As suggested by this HOWTO. I didn't expect it to work the first time as Cyrus and MySQL weren't installed using this HOWTO, so after it failed, I foolishly didn't bother to check why and just reinstalled all the other programs using the HOTOWS specifications, of course I ran into the same problem again.
The "make makefiles..." command seems to work okay, except for having "rm -f Makefile" at the end!
Even so I can still run make, it does however return errors, the most noticeable for me being "/usr/bin/ld: Cannot find -lz. "info lz" tells me that a man page is yet to be written for this command :rolleyes:.
When I remove -lz I get the same output from "make makefiles..." but can not actually run "make".

This discussion leads me to believe I need another package, db-4.1.25-devel. "apt-get install" can't find it, and I can't find it anywhere in dselect. (I should point out here I am confused as to how this could fix my problems considering it directly relates to BDB and I'm installing postfix, so any information explaining this would be really great)
A quick google for db-4.1.25-devel returns only the discussion I've linked to. If anyone knows where I can get it or it's name in debian that would be great.

Thanks for your time.
