replace older versions of libraries in feisty meow's windows 3rdparty

Description

these are quite old dlls. replace them with newest.

  • have done research to find code at least. check the big data chubby transfers area.

we don't want to store someone else's codebase, it's just the dlls we need. a debate raged over whether to store them at all, but since they aren't part of windows and since there's no package management for windows that can easily get the latest and best versions, we still will just store built versions so feisty meow can itself just build properly on windows. this decision can be revisited later.

so the best thing would be to personally rebuild these libraries with the latest.

then record the version level of each dependency for future reference, plus the location of the download.

done, what a pain. needed perl (strawberry) and nasm (from source) installed on win32 for openssl. curl and zlib were relatively easy to build. needed to use windows version for those two, which wasn't super well documented for either one.
