I've added this for the next mingw32 release (I'll forward the change to
Cygnus as well). For now, you can just add the following to where
ZeroMemory is defined:
  #define CopyMemory (dest, source, len) memcpy ((dest), (source), (len))


For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
