Compiling nwchem with python support requires linking with library "-lz".
It happens if target is LINUX CYGNUS CYGWIN INTERIX, but if target is LINUX64 there is no "-lz" in EXTRA_LIBS, so linking fails with error.

I provide the patch that fixes this issue in latest Development snapshot June 09, 2014 Nwchem-dev.revision25716-src.2014-06-09

Hello, Edo.
I'm using Ubintu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.04 and Ubuntu 12.04.

I saw that it was already discussed in post
__Good__ (edit src/config/makefile.h, line 1914 and add -lz -lssl for python support)

but -lssl already fixed
