[PD] Declare library path on windows?

Ok, I see the problem. Try [declare -path Pd_Spectral_Toolkit -lib 
pd_spectral_toolkit]. *ugh*

The author uses capitalization for the library folder name 
(Pd_Spectral_Toolkit) , but the file name and the setup function are all 
lower case (pd_spectral_toolkit[_setup]). Since the Windows filesystem 
is not case sensitive, this creates extra weirdness.

Generally, for Pd libraries containg a single binary should, folder and 
file name should be the same! Please contact the project author and tell 
them to change the folder name to all lower case.
