This circular dependency is a known issue; Freetype needs to be
rebuilt once HarfBuzz is built and installed, if you need Freetype as
a separate library, to be called directly.  We don't need to call
Freetype directly from Emacs on Windows, so this isn't an issue for
Emacs on Windows.

libpng and bzip2 are dependencies of Freetype regardless of HarfBuzz,

That's an optional dependency that Emacs doesn't need at all, but
MSYS2 folks decided to include it.  In general, Glib is needed by
HarfBuzz only in order to run its test suite.
