AFAIK, Windows doesn't have a concept of library directories. DLLs
have to go in the executable search path, the same directory as the
executable, the current directory, or the "windows" or
Try putting it in $GISBASE/bin or $GISBASE/etc/bin/cmd; failing that,
try the "windows" or "windows/system" directories.
