The mingw-zlib package has been updated to version 1.2.1-2. zlib is a
standard lossless compression library; mingw-zlib is a version built 
using the standard windows runtime library and NOT cygwin; it is used by 
setup.exe among other tools.

This is a security bugfix release.


- included security patch from http://lwn.net/Articles/99288/
   Thanks to jglong3 and Brian Dessent for the headsup.
