Because that is what its pkg-config file claims:

$ ar -p libzmq3-dev_4.3.4-1_arm64.deb data.tar.xz | tar xOJvf - \*libzmq.pc

Name: libzmq
Description: 0MQ c++ library
Version: 4.3.4
Libs: -L${libdir} -lzmq
Libs.private: -lstdc++  -lpthread -lrt
Requires.private:  krb5-gssapi libsodium openpgm-5.3 >= 5.3 norm libbsd
Cflags: -I${includedir}

Name is libzmq, Version is 4.3.4. That should be >= 4.2.1.

I assume something else is wrong, like the pkg-config path not being

The output of
$ pkg-config --modversion libzmq
would be interesting, but presumably libzmq isn't found. I wonder how
to debug remotely what pkg-config is doing, if that dev package is
"correctly" installed.
