For a start, read the documentation and FAQ, and if that doesn't help
give us more information.  Did you do a full cygwin install?  Is it all
up to date?  What command did you use to invoke the compiler?  What
was the full error message?

Again, more info needed - we aren't mind-readers. rpm packages aren't
part of the official Cygwin distribution, so you will probably need
to raise the problem with whoever supplied it to you.  You shouldn't
rename libz.dll.a - that is *not* the same thing at all as libz.dll.
I think libz.dll should be part of the Cygwin xfree installation, and
this is the wrong list for xfree queries.
