[zeromq-dev] Getting mingw-w64 into the CI system

Initially raised here:


For those who are not aware of, mingw-w64 project provides GCC
compiler toolchain for Windows targeting both 32bits and 64bits.

It differs from mingw.org compilers mainly in its headers and
libraries, which have been updated and adapted to target seamlessly
32/64 bits.


Right now we use their automated toolchains to cross-compile libraries
to Windows from OSX or Linux.

Ideally, since zeromq is provided as shared library (dll), is not
possible to link from a 64bits application, so that is the reason of
my inquiry about usage of mingw-w64.

What can I do to help you guys get the toolchain setup so zeromq can
be build/tested against it?

Thank you in advance for your time and responses.
