Thanks. I tested it on the same machine I used to build it, so I just
wanted to make sure nothing major was broken.

Hmm, not sure. I'll have to take a look at that.

Windows looks on the PATH to try to find DLLs. If you have copies of
the GTK libs in multiple PATH directories, you might have problems. I
don't know if there's a way to specify the full path to the libraries,
if that's what you're asking. I think it checks the directory the
executable is located in before any other directory, though. If
you're not having any problems, though, I wouldn't worry about it.
