You left off the environment variables to work around not having pkg-config:

liblzma_CFLAGS="-I/usr/include" \
liblzma_LIBS="-L/lib -llzma"    \
zlib_CFLAGS="-I/usr/include"    \
zlib_LIBS="-L/lib -lz"          \
./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/bin --libdir=/lib --sysconfdir=/etc\
             --with-xz     --with-zlib

There cannot be any spaces after the backslashes.
