Most Perforce applications are statically linked and don't have any libs 
outside of the executables themselves.  One exception to this is the SCC 
DLLs.  If you install Perforce in the client configuration (I'm assuming 
you're talking about Windows here), the DLLs will be in the Perforce 
install directory.

The other thing I think you may be talking about is the p4api.  You can get 
this through the Perforce ftp site under the version and machine 
architecture you desire.  That won't do you any good, though, unless you 
are compiling an application that links against it.
