it's unclear what platform you are building on given your mingw
troubles. is that on native Windows or are you cross-building from
in both cases you don't have to build cmake yourself - you can
download it pre-built. what prevents you from doing that?

cmake can give the occasional issues, but i'm sure that the libzip dev
team moved to cmake for a very simple reason - it one of the more
portable build systems.
