As I said: We added a manual patch to libofx, which indeed does exactly what 
you mention here. See 
courtesy of andi5, our Windows hero. We borrowed the code from glib which 
uses GetModuleFileName() to find the installation location, and from there we 
go to the DTD installation location.

Different question: In my native-mingw build of gwenhywfar the xmlmerge.exe 
tool doesn't work; xmlmerge --help seem to hang instead of showing the help 
message. Can I simply use the gwen-2 version of xmlmerge? Or was this tool 
changed as well?
