There are several issues with compiled code libraries (*.dll, *.so, *.dylib
files) and where they must be located. This is particularly true with
'secondary' libraries i.e. compiled code called by other compiled code (e.g.
the GARP and gdal code calls other C libraries). Such libraries need to be
installed in specific locations or environment variables need to be set so that
they can be located at run time. These locations are also platform specific.

Preferably, such code libraries should be included in kar files with the actors
that use them and copied to a place where they are usable when the kar is
installed at startup. Note that installation in some locations may require
special access privileges that not all users may have. e.g. adding dlls to the
windows32 directory is reportedly not allowed under Windows Vista
