           Summary: implicit dynamic dependencies on win32, customize
           Product: GtkRadiant
           Version: 1.2
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: editor
        AssignedTo: ttimo@idsoftware.com
        ReportedBy: ttimo@idsoftware.com

we use implicit dynamic dependencies a lot, for glib gdk gtk+ libxml libpng zlib
default behaviour is to search in current path, then exe path, then some
standard OS paths.

in the case of modules with implicit dynamic dependencies (such as imagepng
dynamically depends on zlib and libpng, and a lot of other modules with libxml),
we have been storing those DLLs in the same path as the .exe

it would be cleaner / more powerful if we could isolate some of the implicit
dependencies. For instance png support:

The GtkRadiant .exe would configure itself for the proper search paths before
loading modules / plugins.

I am fairly sure this is possible, but we need to investigate the win32 API for
that and search around a bit. Contributions highly welcome!
