I am a C beginner and trying to follow "[Getting Started](https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/gtk-getting-started.html)" chapter from the documentation. I have adapted the first example program and when I compile it on Windows using packages MSYS and the MinGW(w-64?) GCC compiler it doesn't run.

I get two error dialog boxes (one after the other) and then the program exits without showing any GUI. The errors are:

The procedure entry point deflateSetHeader could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\msys64\mingw64\bin\libgio-2.0-0.dll.

The procedure entry point inflateReset2 could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\msys64\mingw64\bin\libpng16-16.dll.

These functions should be provided by zlib. Is that not being linked in? (linker flag: -lz)
