I doubt that it helps. At least on Windows 98, the file names "for" assigns
to the variable is already the short type. And AFAIK, there's no way
around the limitation of "one directory level" in Windows 98.

Isn't the contents of the Tomcat lib directory pretty stable at this
point? Do we really need this "auto lib dir" functionality? I would like
to see Tomcat 3.2 released ASAP and don't want to hold it up unnecessarily.
I therefore suggest we add the JAR files explicitly instead; this works
on both NT and Windows 98, and Larry has promised to fix the BAT file.
