[tex-live] TeX-Live on Windows -- problem with dviout fixed

I have just installed the Oct2009 texlive in my Windows XP machine, and found 
that dviout hung when I used it on files with included graphics.

When I set gsx to point to another version of ghostscript that I have on my 
machine the problem went away.

Listed below are the cmd window output and the tmp files that dviout produces.
I fixed the problem of the distributed version of ghostscript not working by 
adding a Resource directory and copying the gs_res.ps file from the standard 
ghostscript distribution to the lib directory of the texlive distribution 

Another problem I have is setting the dviout search path for graphics files. 
Does anyone have a suggestion as to the best way to do this?
