I haven't tried HPDF myself but I assume the Squeak HPDF package uses
the Squeak FFI to talk to the libhpdf.dll.

So if you take a suitable Squeak image install FFI if not already
installed, copy the libhpdf.dll to the Squeak directory it should

As I see the latest mcz for the HPDF package is from 2009 the suitable
Squeak image might not be the latest 4.2 but an older one (3.9 from
ftp.Squeak.org). The author Thorsten Bergmann is a regular on Squeak
