Tried to decompress the snapshot after downloading it. Tried to decompress with both cygwin gzip and
msys gzip. Also tried with winzip. All three failed to decompress the snapshot properly. gzip(s) said it was an
invalidly formatted gzip file. Played with it. changed it to a tar.gz file and still could not get a valid .dll file.
winzip yielded a file, but when I attempted to convert it to a .dll file (changed the name from after extracting from
winzip), windows choked on it and spit out an error, "...not a valid .dll file" when msys was started.
