Here are a few interesting details for those of you looking to use 0mq on Windows via mingw.

1. The libzmq.dll file is created and stored in your zeroqm/src/.libs directory. You need to copy that to a location in your PATH so it can be found by whatever application will be using it.

2. The libzmq.dll library has a dependency on libstdc++-6.dll and libgcc_s_sjlj-1.dll which are in a subdirectory of your mingw/bin directory for gcc. Make sure to copy those DLLs to a directory on your PATH so the dependency can be resolved.

Thanks to Luis Lavena, Mikko Koppanen and Martin Lucina for their help figuring this all out.
