Yes, Windows uses PATH equivalently to LD_LIBRARY_PATH except that it does always search the directory containing the executable first. I don't remember when the current directory is tried, and it may depend on the version of Windows. When tests are run, the current directory is rarely the directory containing the DLLs. Windows Vista 64 bit and Windows 7 add additional new rules (related to manifests) that we will start needing to worry about.

The problem is not fixed yet as far as I am aware. It certainly plagues GraphicsMagick.
