Use the dependency walker on the DLLs that are loaded by Emacs (image
DLLs, GnuTLS, libxml2).

That's expected, since Emacs loads it dynamically when needed.

The tree size will be much smaller, once you collapse all the branches
that begin from Windows system DLLs, since none of them cannot
possibly depend on zlib.
