While improving winesetup script so that I will be able to test VAM under wine, I ran into problem that diff refuses to work without libintl. I see that vam#install#FetchAdditionalWindowsTools is not fetching it. Why?

Becasue I was dump. I just picked the archives. Maybe I never tested it.
I'm not using Windows.

If you think its missing add another download url.

About tar, zip,.. also keep in mind that someone told me he'd be using
7zip instead.

I don't really know. Maybe it is already in the system and is missing just in wine.

In any case, I won't add code to vam#install#FetchAdditionalWindowsTools. It has hardcoded versions (my winesetup parses download pages to get latest ones) and seems to require too much user interaction, so for me it looks like a candidate to purging out (at least forgetting) or rewriting, thus adding libintl there at this point does not make much sense.

I also can't add libintl there without testing and my wine test enviroment already has all required stuff.
