I am not packaging *additional shared libraries*, I am packaging a perl
module. Glib.dll is the perl inetrface to libglib.

Also, Glib.dll *is* being packaged automatically by par, the problem is
that par renames it to some gibberish file (as I already explained).

-l is certainly not going to help as PAR does not load Glib.dll but its own
renamed version of it. packaging Glib.dll in addition will clash with the
version par itself packaged.

This is a bug in par, and cannot be solved with commandline switches.

Yeah, and on top of that thanks for completely ignoring my bug report and
simply closing it without reading it and cetrainly without resolving it :/

If you don't understand something, feel free to aks. But please don't just
blindly close completely valid und unresolved bugs!
