If I copy libgmp-10.dll alongside emacs.exe, as with libXpm-noX4, then
indeed it works. So may be we don't need "-static" any more. It's a long
time since it was tested as you can see. The source for libgmp is in the
source dump.

Another option would be to deprecate -no-deps or remove it
wholesale, Or, alternatively, to not guarantee that it runs (so, I'd
remove libXpm-noX4 also).

Thoughts? Presume this would be on master cause it's a bit late for
