I am not sure how best to make CMake detect were the ZMQ library is install.  
The CMake build file is using pkg-config to find the library, does windows 
have support for pkg-config?  The original lua-zmq bindings [1] uses pkg-
config in a simple Makefile.  Does that one work on windows?

I have switch the generator to using this style of multi-line strings.  The 
other style seemed easier to do and nicer to read, but it wasn't that hard to 
switch to this style.

I have committed an updated pre-generated bindings file, you can manually 
modify the pre-generated file and send me a diff of what changes you needed to 
make it work, and I will try to port the changes to the bindings files or the 
generator as needed.
