In my opinion, dynamic search-paths are a bad idea:

SLIB resolves library paths at the end of library installation.

Files named "usercat" in directories containing source-code
dynamically extend the catalog.  This lets programs have their own set
of modules which can override the system libraries, if desired.

The SLIB system works well and quickly, avoiding the problems
described in my blog.
