Is this somehow related to #13354?

Replying to kcrisman:

Is this somehow related to #13354?

Not at all, it is just that we did not customize the win32 makefile correctly before. Whence the need to install zlib and zlib-devel (or Cygwin equivalents, not sure of the name now) because our own zlib was lacking shared objects.

I mean it is unrelated because zlib does not use autotools at all.

If you really want it can be related in the sense that in the end the problem is that shared objects are not installed (even though in the autotools case they are not even built).

That is what I meant, I guess.

So this would remove the zlib-devel dependency on Win 7, okay, I understand now.
