[Starkit] Two questions about starpacks

I'm trying to build a Starpack for my Tcl3D extension.
It should contain the Tcl wrappers, dependent libraries as
well as some of the demo programs.
The first question is about dependent libraries:
I have a Tcl package (ex. tcl3dSDL.dll), which contains the
Swig generated Tcl wrapper.
This package depends on the SDL dynamic library SDL.dll.
Is it possible to have the latter DLL (which is not loaded
explicitly by the load command) be included in the Starpack
and written out to the filesystem, so that it can be found?
Or do I have to supply theses libraries separately, and have
the user copy them to a directory included in his PATH?
The second question is about exiting a Starpack:
For the demonstration programs I write some files to a
temporary directory on the filesystem. Is it possible to
install some kind of exit handler, so that if the program
finishes (via the exit command in one of the demo programs),
I can cleanup these temp. files (like Tclkit does with the
temp. files, it writes out for dynamic libraries)?
