gcc trying to be helpful... in pretty unhelpful way

gcc tried to help me with figuring pulseaudio-module-cmtspeech-n9xx compilation... It says:

/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libz.so.1: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

To decrypt it, you should understand that "DSO" is a library. So it wants you to add /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libz.so.1 to command line you are using to compile. It took me a while to figure out...
