[Rubygems-developers] Bundling libraries with binary gems...

Question:

If you make a binary gem (say XMLParser...based on expat) and want to
include the expat.dll with your gem...we need a way to support that.  Like
we do within binary executables (like rake), but instead these need to be
installed were those libraries go (LD_LOAD_PATH, etc).  On win32, these
libraries can be installed in the same place as the ruby.exe file (or where
the binary files are installed).

Thoughts?
