The file to look for is the zlib.h header file.

The Lua component of ConTeX has been compiled with a 1.2.5 header file.
If you didn't have that version installed at the time you compiled
TeXlive, then there must be another zlib.h, probably delivered with
TeXlive.  You need to configure the build to use Cygwins zlib.h instead.
