Hi All,
        I've been thinking hard about what Rhys said about directory
seperators issue in pnet ... Why not let a compile time macro handle
the entire issue ?...

IL_DIR_SEP "usr" IL_DIR_SEP "lib" ....

would be /usr/lib in unixy places ... and \\usr\\lib in dos'ish places..

Could configure do that ?  ... if it can , what's stopping us ? ...

BASH$ ./configure  --with-directory-seperator="\\" 

I can't test Mingw32 just coz I don't have W32 installed... 

PS: this just might another of those blinding flashes of the obvious ...
The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
