Most of the additional libraries that build above ZeroMQ are using
libraries built from the MSVC project or solutions files and not the
prepackaged binaries.  Windows has particular requirements for CRT
compatibility which changes with every compiler release, in addition to
regular version and architecture tags.  It has recently announced that the
CRT is supposed to stabilize around CRT 2013.

One ZeroMQ user is performing CRT magic to make the libraries compatible
with multiple compilers, you will have to check the archives for further
