A few minor tweaks and documentation fixes relative to the recent
This one is probably ready to go into 'latest' (*) AFTER the next
cygwin-binutils package is released.
(*) I think zlib should be in 'contrib' instead of 'latest'.
The package is now available for testing at
Building requires gcc-2.95.2-2 and binutils (CVS, 20000721 or later)
o import-lib libfoo.dll.a
o stripped dll libfoo.dll
o static-lib libfoo.a
o cygwin-specific docs in /usr/doc/Cygwin/zlib-1.1.3.README
o generic docs in /usr/doc/zlib-1.1.3/*
o source archive already has the cygwin-specific patch applied
o cygwin-specific README and PATCH are stored in the source archive,
under <top>/CYGWIN-PATCHES/* (although the patch has already been
applied to the archive itself).
o define -DZLIB_STATIC to get the 'correct' #define's when compiling a
.o that will be linked statically -- as well as using 'gcc -static'
during the link step
o no special -Ddefine options needed (or link options) needed to link to
I was able to successfully compile and pass 'make test' with all of the

However, the binary package did not use any of the assembler code, and I
didn't use 'gcc -mno-win32'.
