[PD] externs

I hate having to ask these questions because I know it seems like I didn't 
check Google or the archives, but I did.
 I have zexy working, if I manually open zexy.pd before trying to use any of 
it. However, I can't figure out how to get Gem to work. I also see now it 
should be possible for zexy to be loaded automatically so I don't have to 
open that file first.
I'm on WinXP, with Pd 0.38.3. There's a GUI for startup binaries and 
flags... One odd thing about it is that deleting something from any of these 
fields, and hitting the Apply and Save Settings buttons over and over has no 
effect: the commands that didn't work are reinserted when I restart Pd. I 
can deal with that...
 So, if I have gem.dll and zexy.dll in particular locations, shouldn't I be 
able to paste the entire paths to them in quotes into the "binaries to load 
on startup", and it will find them? I also put in the -path and -lib flags 
suggested in the readmes.
 I don't fully understand the process Pd goes through. If it can find the 
.dll, is that all it should need? As of now I get a message for each startup 
bin saying Pd couldn't load the library.
 Also, in reference to .pdrc, what is the syntax for it? Should I just type 
a bunch of flags into a text editor and save as .pdrc?

Thanks guys!
