Hello Fernando

This is a bug caused by updates in SRILM 1.7.1, it introduced zlib dependency. You have the following options:

1) Use SRILM 1.7.0 instead

2) In t3/Makefile change the following line

SRILM_LIBS=-L$(SRILM_LIB) -loolm -lmisc -ldstruct


SRILM_LIBS=-L$(SRILM_LIB) -loolm -lmisc -ldstruct -lz

> Hello,
> I'm trying to install a software that requires SRILM. I followed the instructions in the INSTALL file and run the tests and everything was fine (with SRILM 1.7.1). However, when I tried to compile that software I got the following errors:
> ..../srilm-1.7.1//lib/i686-m64/libmisc.a(File.o): In function `File::fprintf(char const*, ...)':
> ..../srilm-1.7.1/misc/src/File.cc:602: undefined reference to `gzvprintf'
> I'm not sure if the problem is related to srilm or to the software I'm trying to install. Any help you could give me will be much appreciated.
> The software I'm trying to install is here.
> The machine I'm trying to install it is a Scientific Linux release 6.8 (Carbon).
