Description : compression library (targeting Windows)
zlib is a library implementing the deflate compression method found in
gzip and PKZIP. This package provides headers and libraries required
to build Windows software using zlib.
I'm packaging this to allow Python to build its Windows executables,
and also to test Colin Watson's idea of using apt-get during builds in
lieu of full-blown source build-dependencies.
Once (if?) we get proper partial architecture support for Windows this
package will be removed.
