IMHO libzdll.a should be named as libz.dll.a. However it's the official name hardcoded in win32/Makefile.gcc...
I changed it to libz.dll.a as you suggested, and configure went off without a hitch. make install complained about the lack of -lzdll, so i copied the same file to libzdll.a as it was originally. This appeared to work. Thanks!

Please try to remove/rename c:/MinGW/lib/ la files on Win32 is not necessary required and somtimes confuse libtool on Win32.

There is no at all (which I think is what the warning is suggesting). I am using the libiconv bin and lib from gnuwin32 (1.9.2) [1] because it seemed more recent and coherent than the one from TML [2] which had been used in its 1.8.1 version for previous versions. Is this what you would recommend?
