Two things (each item is a bit long), with two questions/comments at the bottom:

1. I don't think zlib-devel is installed:

Could the fact zlib-devel is NOT installed be my issue?

Also, it looks like my hardware will not support Centos 7 so I'm guessing need to procure a new box.

I think this answers all the outstanding queries you asked for Micah.  My thanks for the support.
