This sounds very much like a configure script.

Check for installed libraries, fail if something is missing. I like it :)

On Linux however all libraries are present in distributions (I buy you a beer 
if you name a single Linux distribution which doesn't include necessary 
development packages, knoppix not counted). Only Windows distribution doesn't 
include them, so for convenience windows binaries may be cached for download 
on harmony site.
