/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz error

I am installing lxml module for python on redhat
I have installed libxml2 already.
When I run for libxslt:
./configure --prefix=libxslt_folder --with-libxml-prefix=libxml2_folder

It is ok
the I run :

I have error:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I found in google that is connected somehow with static library, but I still cannot find how to solve it.
