It's against the rules to put shared libraries (or very much at all in 
fact) in {sys}.  All files should go in {app} where possible.  This is 
to avoid upgraded libraries breaking existing installations.

The exceptions from the msi installer are:

secur32.dll for win9x installs - this is a microsoft system DLL 
anyway... make sure it's version checked.
setuid.dll - because you can't run it from anywhere else (it loads at 
system startup).

Both of these have no other dependencies except the standard system dlls.
