I just updated the dependencies for Emacs-27 and -28 to include jansson
which has been missed off, so this may have changed things.

It should have giflib, libjpeg, libpng included. If that doesn't work,
then it's broken. But I don't know what you mean "usuable with the usual
image-handling dlls I've had for years". Do you mean, you are using DLLs
that are already on your machine?

Eli, I don't include libgmp at the moment. Is this new for Emacs-27
also? If so, I need to update that also.

The deps file didn't upload. Not uncommon, the GNU upload process is
horrible. They should be there soon, hopefully.

The installer version including all the dependencies is the smallest

The fix for this is also uploading.
