The emacs.exe file has shrunk from 121 mb to 6.2 mb. That is pretty, pretty
good. Thanks a lot! I've only lightly tested it so far, but it seems
that nothing
isbroken. eww doesn't work due to missing libxml2, but it didn't work in
emacs 24 either. There is an 10mb emacs.pdmp file in
libexec\emacs\27.0.50\x86_64-w64-mingw32 which must be some leftover from the
old build process. Even with that file, the install is roughly as
small as it was in
version 24.5.
