We don't know how or if that will happen yet. But we definitely need to 
fix that somehow.  Having the directory structure that we have currently 
is suboptimal.

Right...I forgot about that. Thanks for the reminder. It also requires 
glu32.lib as well.

I have no idea.  But I'm  not sure if it should.  This is a fairly large 
library and adding all dwt platforms to the tango distribution would 
severely bloat the download.  I think it will be important to package 
dwt-win and dwt-linux in an easy-to-install format, however.

One option I'm thinking about is a sort of dsss package (making it easy 
to install like dsss net install).  All you should have to do is 
download the latest stable release of dwt (packaged something like 
DD-dwt-win-vXX.zip) and install the package locally with something like 
"dsss install DD-dwt-win-vXX.zip" which would install the *.di files and 
library.  This would make for simple integration of the package into 
IDE's and such.  But currently dsss does not have this feature... would 
be kind of nice, though. ;)
