Openssl compilation is ok with the switch zlib-dynamic, zlib is now installed but wget not found it, maybe the package *.pc is missing.
I try to install the lfs system with the jhbuild tool, so well that some package aren't properly installed suite a bug with the switches libdir, bindir and override prefix into jhbuild.

zlib is a very basic library.
I can't believe that you have openssl libraries installed and not having zlib, though it might be possible to compile openssl without zlib (?).

But anyway, I just posted a patch to the mailing list.

the compilation failed with the switch --with-ssl=openssl if zlib not installed, in the config.log, the error is :

ld cannot find option -lz

I try also --with-ssl=openssl --without-zlib and failed

Version of wget : 1.14
