    11 Windows does actually have a similar concept to RPATHs: side-by-side assemblies. These do allow us to give the location of DLLs that we use, but only as relative paths, and using at most 2 `../`s. It's therefore not possible to use assemblies to say that we use `c:/ghc/base/base.dll`. This therefore doesn't generally allow us to solve the problem.
