The only problem I can name with dll under windows is that you can
compile your own zlib.dll with different calling convention than the
default one. That can make another application looking for zlib.dll
crash. But MiKTeX and fpTeX are now providing those dll with their own
name (tl80zlib.dll for me) to minimize the problems.
