We have followed the following shell commands-

CFLAGS := -gdwarf-2
gunzip gzip-1.8.tar.gz && tar -xf gzip-1.8.tar
export CFLAGS
./configure --prefix=<some-dir>
make all
make install

These are the commands we have executed. Please find the attached output of 
'./configure'. Our build machine is (x86_64 SuSE10SP4)

We may be able to help, but only if you first tell us more about your problem:
  - what precise commands you ran (starting from the pristine unpacked
gzip-1.8 tarball)
  - what output they produced
  - describe your system, i.e., Fedora 25, Solaris 11, Debian unstable, etc.
