Well, the problem really is that Allegro right now hardcodes the DLL
path to be in the same folder as the .exe. In my case that's the
system-wide python.exe so its location has nothing at all to do with
where my game has libvorbis.dll.

I have no idea at all what a manifest or assembly is though, so maybe
that can help?
