A minor clarification.
If gswin32 is installed with the setup program, registry
entries are written which allow Ghostscript to find the lib
files. This code is implemented as a special case of
gp_getenv. If GS_LIB is not defined as an environment
variable, Ghostscript will look in the registry key
for a value GS_LIB and use this if present.
This is convenient for release versions, but inconvenient
for test versions for which Igor is likely to be doing
So ghostscript will be able to find lib files for release
versions, but not for development versions.
Perhaps we should add code which adds to the libpath
the DLL path modified by ..\lib so GS can find the lib
files for development code. I am willing to write this if
it is wanted. Proposed code would overload this onto
gp_getenv as follows:
If environment variable exists, use it.
else if registry entry exists, use it.
else if name = GS_LIB, return dll path + ..\lib
This won't help find fonts. It is assumed that the default
libpath fill find these.
