Supposedly this is a RedHat 7.2 "bug" (don't know if it's strictly a bug 
per se, but it's only required with RH 7.2).  I know because I've compiled 
PHP on both RH 7.0 and 7.1 and the --with-zlib was not required.  I just 
about pulled my hair out trying to resolve the issue and I decided to look 
on where I found the solution. is extremely 
helpful for stuff like this, (even though strictly speaking those types of 
things shouldn't be submitted as bugs) and I don't think enough people out 
there know to check it.  It's actually helped me out on 2-3 occasions...
