The bindings from bvarga work well with the version 3.2.5 and 32 bits.

The binding have some issues with 64bits. There are at least a few 
places where you must change integer to ptruint and there can be more 
subtle problems.

Another problem with version 4.x.x is that at some point they changed 
the zmq_msg_t structure definition.
The array inside grew from 32 bytes to 64 and they added an extra void 

typedef union zmq_msg_t {unsigned char _ [64]; void *p; } zmq_msg_t;



the bindings (https://github.com/bvarga/delphizmq/blob/master/zmq.pas) 
still have

   zmq_msg_t = record
     _: Array[0..32-1] of Byte;

which is the correct definition for version 3.2.5.
