[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: mingw-{zlib,zlib-devel,zlib1,minizip,libminizip-devel,libminizip1}-1.2.8-1

The mingw-zlib package has been updated to version 1.2.8-1. zlib is a
standard lossless compression library; mingw-zlib is a version built
using the standard windows runtime library and NOT cygwin; it is used by
setup.exe among other tools. 

[[ compiled using mingw-gcc-4.7.3-1 ]]

CHANGES since 1.2.7-1
* Update to latest upstream version
* Rely on cygport to autogenerate setup.hint files
  + Moved to 'Devel' category instead of 'Mingw'
* Build using win32/Makefile.gcc rather than hacked-up non-autoconf
  configure and
* Moved minizip doc files to mingw-minizip package
* Removed man(3) documentation as it is already provided
  by native zlib.
* Build with mingw-gcc-4.7.3 toolchain
* First cygwin64 build
