Oh, feh. Seems I forgot to commit something...!
I committed 1.2.1nb1 just now; give it a short while to show up in anoncvs.
It needed a fix to install the library properly.
$ chmod +x /usr/pkg/lib/libz.so.1.2
(The oddness is that Interix's ld.so *requires* that shared objects be
executable, and other *ix are lenient. Traditionally +x is indeed required,
but modern software packages haven't done the right thing in that respect.
I've had to fix this in quite a few packages thus far, and expect to run
into several more all over the place.)
