I noticed that all the DLLs in \install\lib have
the same base address (0x00400000). There is
a chance that this leads to non-negligible load
time increases because the OS needs to relocate
them at load time. Research results at:


Simplest way to do this is by adding the
following link option:


where ZZ is some 256-bit hash e.g. derived from
the DLL's name.

Mind you, I didn't actually test if this would
make any difference in this case, but even
though it may not, it doesn't hurt either.


Same issue perhaps under Linux, of course,
but I don't know any details about that.
