Plone 3 on Natty: Python 2.4 with PIL

Installing PIL in a (hand-compiled) python2.4 yielded "python "ZLIB (PNG/ZIP) support not available", although i did have zlib1g-dev installed.

Found the answer in Natty puts some libs in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, where PIL can't find them. Symlinking helps.
