I just uploaded a 64 bit zsh-5.0.2-1 package. I did not convert it to

Only two patches were necessary, one of them dropping
--host=i686-pc-cygwin and --target =i686-pc-cygwin from the configury,
the other was replacing a call to cygwin_conv_to_posix_path with a call
to cygwin_conv_path in builtin.c since the old, deprecated
cygwin_conv_to_XXX API doesn't exist on x86_64 anymore. The patch is
fortunately target independent.
Thanks for doing this.
I've been too busy to devote time to Cygwin lately and I still don't have
access to 64-bit windows to do the porting.
As it turns out, someone else tried building zsh on Cygwin recently and
hit this same problem (cygwin_conv_to_posix_path). I believe it's been
fixed upstream, but I'll verify that when I grab the latest zsh release.
BTW, how hard would it be to move to cygport? Is it worth the trouble?
Zsh seems to run fine as far as my limited testing goes.
Since there was an existing 5.0.2-1 (32-bit) and since there was a
revision to the source package and since the changes could be applied to
both 32-bit and 64-bit, you probably should have made this 5.0.2-2
instead, but, hey, no worries. I'll sync things up once I get a 64-bit
Win running. :-)
