What exactly do you mean by "cannot find"?  Please show an example of
this failure, since it's very hard to reason about a problem that is
not well understood.  In addition to showing the relevant error
messages of some command that led you to believe zlib cannot be found,
please show the directories where zlib files were installed.

In general, the header files, libraries, and DLLs should be in their
intended places under the directory you specify in --prefix, in order
for the configure scripts to find them.  And executable programs
should be on PATH.  If you keep your hierarchy in this order, nothing
bad will ever happen to you.
