Hello Steven,

     Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my question!

I downloaded
http://repo.msys2.org/mingw/x86_64/mingw-w64-x86_64-zlib-1.2.8-9-any.pkg.tar.xz

And that's where you went off in the wrong direction. You're writing to the Cygwin mailing, but that's the MSYS2 package repository. Those are two different environments, so you should _not_ mix up them up like that.

The rationale for doing this is that those two files are the only two
dependencies outside of the Windows system dlls the project uses.

That's a valid reason to get yourself a local version of minizip, but _not_ a reason to just plunk MSYS2 files into the middle of a cygwin installation.
