Installing lxml, pytz, soaplib, suds with pip

When trying to install the mentioned packages with pip I ran into the following error:

NOTE: Trying to build without Cython, pre-generated 'src/lxml/lxml.etree.c' needs to be available.
Using build configuration of libxslt 1.1.24
Building against libxml2/libxslt in the following directory: /usr/lib

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

It turned out that the zlib1g-dev package was missing

If he has been like this before entering the company?

You can’t buy advertising like this – even pay per click campaigns and advertising agencies the likes the world has never seen. Martian developer developers developers developers might come and snatch this guy from our midst and use his brain for web design, while using his large carcass for web hosting and server rack space. Yikes!
