Just wondering why not use zlib and libjpeg from the gnuwin32 project 
instead of compiling them manually? The internationalisation packages 
(libintl, libiconv and gettext) from there also work well "out of the box" 
and gives mult-language support to GRASS on Windows.

I just noticed gnuwin32 has pdcurses as well (I think that is new) - so 
maybe manual compilation of it could also be avoided. Freetype also seems 
to be there which is pretty useful to include too.
