Not really, nor should there be. Different sites/people have widely
varying conventions/needs. Home users typically have just one hard
drive "C:". But some machines (like mine, for instance) don't have any
"C:" drive at all. Larger installations want the stuff on a network
drive. Folders like "Program Files" have localized names on
non-English Windows machines. Etc.

I hope they don't put the DLLs directly in system32? That would be
very silly. Installing a GTK subfolder in system32 is perhaps not a
very good idea either.

Either should be OK.

"official" means there would be paid staff sitting in their offices
planning and implementing GTK for Windows. Not likely. At least that's
how I interpret the term. Jernej's installer presumably is the most
officialish you will get.
