Speaking of DLL search issues, the DLLs in the original location should be
found with no problems.  The only problems would be with DLLs that are
moved with the real executable (which should be taken care of by adding
the actual location to the PATH before exec'ing the real program) and DLLs
that themselves need to be wrapped (not sure what the right solution would
be -- see <http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2005-06/msg00136.html> for
some suggestions).
