6.7.1. Installation of Zlib

Several packages in the temporary system use Zlib, including Binutils, GCC, and Util-linux, so we will add it to /tools.

./configure \
    --prefix=/tools \

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install

Details on this package are located in Section 10.20.2, “Contents of Zlib.”
