Then that code should not go in dlls/d3dx9 but in libs/d3dx9 or some

In the pas we've had multiple dlls in a single dlls/xxx sub-directory... 
but in sub-directories thereof. Anyway that's the past. Now it's all be 
 * for each dll we implement there one and only one subdirectory in 
 * conversely, each 'dlls' subdirectory implements one and only one dll

That's quite practical to automate the generation of Makefiles, Visual 
Studio projects, automated code checking, etc. Besides, what's an 13 
extra directories in a sea of already 233 dlls.
