Hi Mark, 

As you said, I checked dependency of liblwgeom.dll on XP SP2 ja and en env.
At first, just after installation, lwgeom.dll could find kernel32.dll and msvcrt.dll 
but couldn't find libgeos_c-1.dll, libproj.dll and postgresql.exe in both system. 
Because %PATH% env didn't include Postgres's bin directry, 
I thoutht it isn't wrong result.

Second, I added postgres's bin directry to %PATH% and checked dependency again. 
On both system, liblwgeom.dll could find all dll. Some system dll, which is not directly 
linked liblwgeom.dll, only have small diffrent in dependency tree.

If you need dependency log on japanese system, I can send it for you.
