Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. I'll CC: this to the lzip bug list, since the 
ezwinports port should probably be mentioned on the lzip web page next to the 
existing Cygwin and old non-Cygwin ports.

For those using Windows 10 Anniversary build 14393 or later on x86-64, another 
option is Microsoft's Bash on Windows package, which I expect supports lzip. 
This also should be a way to run GNU tar, gzip, etc., which should be helpful 
for anybody doing serious work on the tz code and data (e.g., regression 
testing). See:


I realize this last option is forward-looking, as we can't expect every 
Microsoft Windows user to be running last month's release. But forward-looking 
is OK for the experimental tzdb distribution format.
