Re: Link error with static version of zlib?

If I am not mistaken, when selecting the package mingw64-x86_64-zlib
with the installer, it installs the library, which has been compiled
as both a DLL and a static library.

But it appears that the minizip library included within the zlib
package is only present in DLL form.

1. mingw64-x86_64-zlib package does not include minizip

       $ sage listfiles mingw64-x86_64-zlib
       usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libz.a
       usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libz.dll.a

2. mingw64-x86_64-zlib doesnt even pull in the minizip package:

       $ sage-cost.sh mingw64-x86_64-zlib
          73,920 desktop-file-utils
          52,608 gamin
         478,080 gsettings-desktop-schemas
          11,592 libfam0
       2,885,964 libglib2.0_0
         693,532 libxml2
          56,616 mingw64-x86_64-pkg-config
         109,828 mingw64-x86_64-zlib
          56,536 pkg-config
         299,232 shared-mime-info

3. The package you are looking for is mingw64-x86_64-minizip, which doesnt get
  pulled in from anything:

       $ sage rdepends mingw64-x86_64-minizip
       mingw64-x86_64-minizip

  you have to manually install it.

4. You are rigth about the DLL:

      $ sage listfiles mingw64-x86_64-minizip
      usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin/libminizip-1.dll
      usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libminizip.dll.a

If you want the static version, you need to build it yourself, or post issue
here:

Good luck on this though:
