yup -- that seems to be what it says...

So I'm guessing that it would not work putting DLLs into the 'DLLs'

and yet there is a bunch of stuff there, so something is going on...It
looks like my Windows box is down at the moment, but I _think_ there are a
bunch of dependency dlls in there -- and not the extensions themselves.

But I'm way out of my depth, too.
