Sorry, as I said I am new to osx, I found some forum post saying that it
was deprecated, but now I cannot find a reliable page stating the same.

Anyway my problem is that I have a main binary in


and a helper app that is spawned programmatically in


and they both use gtk. If @executable_path is used in a configuration
file like gdk-pixbuf.loaders then it cannot work for both those
binaries, because it is relative to the executables and they are in
different directories. If the file was relative to the gdk-pixbuf
library itself the file wold be always correct.

This is also where my tangential pointer to the win32 port came from: if
the the pixbuf loaders were loaded from a path relative to the
gdk-pixbuf.dylib binary, then the gdk-pixbuf.loaders file would not be
needed at all, removing the issue at the origin.
