compiling GPA to run on windows // do-able?

downloaded the source code for GPA 0.9.2 and tried to compile it on
mingw/msys

didn't quite work ...

here is what happened:

$ ./configure --prefix=/mingw
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.exe
checking for suffix of executables... .exe
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed
checking dependency style of gcc... gcc3
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E

checking for sin in -lm... yes
checking for compress in -lz... no
configure: error: GPA requires zlib (http://gzip.org/zlib or install Debian
pack
age zlib1g-dev)

couldn't find zlib on the gzip.org site

is there anywhere else to find zlib?

are there any other dependencies that are also needed before compiling?

is it supposed to be 'not do-able' under windows?

(the compililer *did* give the encouraging message of:
'checking whether build environment is sane... yes'
;-) )

TIA

It is not designed to be build on Windows. We cross-build everything.
