Sorry, I don't understand the question.  The HarfBuzz DLLs aren't
different from any other DLL you download from MSYS2, so the same
procedure should do, and should bring you all the DLLs on which
HarfBuzz depends.  Which are those depends on how the MSYS2 people
built HarfBuzz; they generally specify everything that's possible,
even if it makes little sense on Windows, but that's their decision.

If you refer to "the requisite DLLs" I mentioned, that was a reference
to libharfbuzz-0.dll itself, not to its dependencies.  The code loads
only that single DLL.
