[netCDF #YNV-368298]: netCDF z/OS port problems resolving zlib

Hello Martyn,

I will do my best; I don't have access to a z/OS environment, but I've never 
let that sort of thing stop me from engaging in speculation in the past!

If this were a linux platform, I'd mention that many current distributions do 
not search `/usr/local` for libraries and include files.  In this case, I'd 
recommend running `configure` as follows:

    $ CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib" ./configure

If this doesn't work, would it be possible for you to provide the `config.log` 
file generated when you run configure? This will provide additional information 
I can use for further speculation.

I hope this helps!
