    plus the zlib libz dev package had a overwrite error.. and wouldn't force
    an overwrite... had to do it manually...

If you installed any associated files "behind mingw-get's back", then this is
expected, and by design. The rationale is that mingw-get has no way of knowing
whence an existing file, which it wants to install but doesn't own, may have
come. It doesn't want to blindly overwrite something which may be important to
you, and may differ in functionality from the version it provides. On the horns
of this dilemma, it does the only sane thing it can — it tells you there is a
potential conflict, and leaves it to you to decide how it should be resolved.
If you do want mingw-get to take ownership, then you must manually delete the
conflicting files, and then "mingw-get install --reinstall ..." the owning
package.
