Just to be sure, you might try another:
nmake distclean
nmake all
nmake all (again)

If you still don't progress any further and can live w/out zlib support
temporarily just so you can get on with the rest of your work, you could try
commenting out ZLIB_DIR in config.nmake. Also, you may want to recheck that you
followed all steps in the developer's guide:

One other thing that *might* be a problem (whether it's related or not, I don't
know) is that you have python 2.7 installed and the notes in config.nmake
indicate the following:

        # NOTE: The Python library must have been compiled with the same
        # compiler (MSVC_VARIANT) as Wireshark. Known python.org Python
        # CRT versions:
        # Python version CRT (32-bit) CRT (64-bit)
        # 2.4.4 7.1 ?
        # 2.6.1 9.0 ?
        # 2.6.2 9.0

... so this tells me you should probably be using 2.6.1 or 2.6.2.
