Using PAR with gtk2 on MS Windows

Hello out there,

with PAR (, it is possible to create self-contained .exe-files of 
perl scripts that run on a Windows desktop without any Perl installed 
(successfully proven, for example, by the Perl/Tk app MaPiVi 

I would very much like to create such a self-contained .exe-file of my own 
gtk2-perl application, but everything I got so far still depends on an 
installation of the Glib- and Gtk2-libraries. I understand that, because 
those libraries aren't really "Perl" and therefore probably not taken into 
account by PAR.
Anyway, the people I want to test my application really won't install anything 
more than a .exe-file:-((

With the -l option, I was able to include additional libraries, but they are 
not found / linked / loaded correctly: I simply added a -l for *every* .dll 
found in the GTK\2.0\ installation directory, but still get an error when 
trying to start the .exe on the other windows box without perl / Gtk 
installed (pango complains about not being able to find dynamic libraries).

Is there any way to include those libraries within the PAR-created executable, 
so that I can just take it, drop it into another Windows machine and run it? 
Has anybody on the list ever tried to do that (and, hopefully, suceeded)?

Thank you very much for your help,
