"The windows builds might be working at buildbot (buildbot Windows-XP-x8)."
New developers are stopped at first point (compilation ) we are not able to download the zlib-1.2.5.zip file required for compilation. ("same case for 64 Bit zlib125ws.zip" ).
The wget works but while unzipping it fails, Its not a problem with Zip utility (tried all util's on the planet 7zip,winrar,winzip... ) non worked.
some body has messed up with the zlib kept in the trunk.
I struggled a lot to get the proper zlib-1.2.5.zip and compiled it.
Please fix it .
Build bot will not face problem because after "nmake -f Makefile.nmake setup" the script will not download using wget if the zlib-1.2.5.zip is present in "c:\wireshark-win32-libs" directory.
I tried very hard for about a week to find a proper zlib.

Works for me, using your link I'm able to download and open the zip file using 7-zip and Windows Explorer (on XP).
I've also just built on XP, deleting zlib-1.2.5.zip so ensuring setup downloaded it again with no issues.
