Not all those files are required to run wget. It looks like it's the
full binary install for several packages that may be used to build wget,
and perhaps a couple of items that aren't used for that at all (curl.exe
is an obvious example).

Picking what's needed from what's not needed could be difficult to do
safely, though, so you might consider leaving everything there. From a
first glance, though, I'd expect you could safely remove everything in
root/share/doc, root/share/emacs, root/share/gettext, and root/share/man
(there's a wget.1 in there, but then perhaps you don't have a "man"
command installed, and you can always get the more-complete
documentation from the website).

I imagine any .exe files other than wget can be removed. I'd leave all
the dlls to be safe, though.
