Apparently I answered my own questions here...
It would seem that I need to inform the IDE of each of the specific
directories that contain the necessary library files I expect to
link with. I had mistakenly thought I only needed to point the IDE
to the base directory of all the libraries and it would find the
one's it needed, but no such magic exists. My bad.
The DOS environ question was an irrelavant byproduct of my confusion.
