I think the problem is that you downloaded a 64-bit build of Emacs,
but your dependencies are from the ezwinports site, which provides
only 32-bit DLLs, and those cannot be loaded by 64-bit programs.

You should either use the 64-bit dependencies from the GNU FTP site,
or wait for Phillip to upload a new 32-bit build to the GNU FTP site.
