Hi Tino,

I do not use Windows, so I can't make binaries for it.

In fact building for Windows on Linux (cross compile) is really not hard:

For some value of "hard". ;-)

Installing MinGW on my heavily customized system does not seem easy (nor safe). It would be way easier for the user to install Cygwin (a friend if mine tried it and had lzip working on her Windows machine in no time).

./configure CXX=i686-w64-mingw32-g++-posix LDFLAGS=-static
mv lzip lzip.exe

That's it :-)

I didn't try plzip, though, but the build process should be similar there.

Please, could you try compiling plzip and then send me the (zipped) binaries for me to upload them to the ftp site? Thanks.

Best regards,
