I see what the problem is. My binaries are linked against 
libmzsch300_000.dll, and not
against libmzsch301_00.dll.  I guess this is why with Gtk+, although the 
number increases, the libraries are still named e.g. 
"lib-gtk-win32-2.0-0.dll" instead
of "lib-gtk-win32-2.8-9".

Is it not a (good) idea to use a different distribution scheme, e.g., 
like UNIX, where
libxyz.so is actually a link to libxyz.so.1, which is  a link to 
libxyz.so.1.3.9. If an
application links against libxyz.so.1, it will also work with 
libxyz.so.1.4.1 and only
break when the library goes up to libxyz.so.2.

So on WIN32, libmzsch3.dll should be there to link against. And for more 
libmzsch30.dll, libmzsch300.dll, libmzsch300_000.dll.

Is it an idea to support this?
