I don't beleive this is a windows-specific issue. It's a general issue
for all relocateable installs.

As for how to do it - on Windows you *can* get the path of the DLL that
is executing your code, using GetModuleFileName(). Hardly
cross-platform, but can be done.

(The "windows standard" way of doing it is using String Tables as
resources inside the DLL.But that's now what gettext uses, so it's not
relevant unless we'd want to replace gettext (which we don't))
