Management of shared libs on Windows is going to be a bit of a pain. For the purposes of testing we will want to just modify the %PATH% to include the lib dir containing the dlls. This should be enough for the testsuite, to ensure no regressions. Ian: could you look at this? We'll want all the dlls installed into the ghc lib dir I think (or a subdir if you prefer). Then the testsuite on Windows would need to add that directory to the %PATH% so that executables generated by ghc will be able to find the dlls.
