MinGW GCC Compiler steps

install "mingw".

Install zlib.

For more zlib info see http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/zlib.htm.
Download Developer files for Zlib from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/downlinks/zlib-lib-zip.php
Extract the files from zlib-1.2.3-lib.zip into your MinGW base folder.
Download Binaries files for Zlib from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/downlinks/zlib-bin-zip.php
Extract the DLL from zlib-1.2.3-bin.zip into any folder that is in your path; like your MinGW bin folder.

Build KiCad using CMake and Code::Blocks Steps

Install the KiCad source tree.

Install CMAKE

Download the installation binary for windows from http://www.cmake.org.
Install that and choose to add cmake to your path during installation.
You will have to restart and command shells for the new path to take effect.
Verify that cmake is in your path by trying to run it from a command prompt.

Install Code::Blocks

Patch CMake files to use Monolithic wxWidgets

Use CMake to build the KiCad makefiles.

Use Code::Blocks to build KiCad.
