Attached is a patch that makes ECL independent of the installation
directory (all hard-coded paths have been removed). What it does:
1) computes the "SYS:" directory at run-time from the DLL location
using "GetModuleFileName"; to do this, I introduced the function
si::get-library-pathname; this should work in all cases.
2) computes include and library dir from the "SYS:" directory as
it is done under UNIX (this removes some #-msvc declarations).
3) fixes a problem in homedir_pathname which assumed that the
directory separator is always '/'.
4) add support for NSIS in Makefile's, using a flatten installation;
ecl_nsi.bat should be put into msvc\util\ directory.
