All of the d3dx9_*.dll's (note the underbar!) are simple helper dlls and as
Raphael said should be bundled with the game.  A quick search for the missing
DLL on google will turn it up, download it (legality = unknown, but probably
okay since it is a redistributable fine anyways), put it in your game (or
windows/system) directory and everything should work fine.  I had to do this for
some DX test programs recently myself so I know it works no problem.
