I just looked at it and while it would be easy to copy that solution
I don't like it.
Is there any reason why zlib and portaudio aren't built by the setup
target/script instead of the build process?
 
Setup doesn't really know what toolchain you'll be building with.
 
The reason for compiling zlib is because of crt mismatch so that definitely needs to be built with the correct toolchain.
 
Portaudio doesn't distribute binary packages so must be built from source but it does have CMake support already.
