I forgot to mention it, but the DT_NEEDED for libz.so does
exist in libfreetype.so.6.   

export LDFLAGS="-Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib32" 
before building helps.   (-rpath-link would also work for linking, 
but I prefer
to get that rpath recorded in the resulting binary, thus I use -rpath).

The WineOn64bit web page suggests (in the Debian
advice)  creating symlinks from libfreetype.so
and libz.so to libfreetype.so.6 and libz.so.1 respectively.
(in the /usr/lib32 directory).
These are also essential.   Very helpful web page.

AFAIK I have just one remaining problem on AMD64 laptop running 
kubuntu : a missing Font library set, noticed at configure time.
Won't get a chance to deal with that today.
A couple days ago I incautiously installed something on the laptop
that killed X server.  I reinstalled from scratch and will be much
more careful now...  And keep better records of what I install!
