'./configure && make' is pretty simple

I can only guess how Werner is doing it. I've not asked him.

Downloading and building the bzip2 sources, then adding
'--with-bzip2=<DIR>' to configure was the way I used it to static link in
the bzip2 code back before I switched over to the dll from the GnuWin32

'--with-included-zlib' or '--with-zlib=<DIR>' would do the same with the
zlib code.
