This is probably not relevant.  The TeX Live binaries that you're using 
should have been linked statically against zlib-1.2.7, which was 
provided in the TeX Live source tree.

Since you're not using Cygwin's TeX Live, this discussion probably 
belongs on the TeX Live mailing list.  But let's try a couple of simple 
things before moving there.  Please send (as attachments)

(a) a minimal tex file that exhibits the problem


(b) cygcheck output as requested at http://cygwin.com/problems.html.

Make sure that the cygcheck output shows your PATH as it was when you 
had the problem, or else send the PATH separately.  It might also help 
for you to search your system and make sure you don't have the older 
zlib.h anywhere, though I'm not sure that's relevant.
