I think putting the DLL into /bin is the general solution. I wrote this
on this list a couple of times and I'm writing this again, as long as
anybody wants to read it: Chroot is a bad hack, bad fake on Cygwin and
I curse the day I added this to Cygwin. Don't use chroot and think
you're safe. You're not. It's just a joke of a jail. Don't put too
much work into it. I, certainly, won't.
