I think it means "running make install".

If we believe that files should not be gzipped by default on windows
(and I agree with you that they should not be), then perhaps this option
needs to default to off when build on windows. As it stands, the
windows zip files I have made are not using the default options in a
couple of ways.

I have a similar question about --with-wide-int. I've build the x86_64
binaries with this option on, but I am not clear whether this is a good
thing to do or not.

These have been changed now anyway.
