Thanks for your quick reply, Phil.  And thanks especially
for creating the snapshots.

Yes, I've had the basic image-processing stuff on my machine
for years now.  I may not have the latest - I did that quite
a while ago.  For at least some older Emacs releases that was
sufficient.  It may no longer be.

For a while I've been downloading the snaps with dependencies,
but this time I thought I might try the snap without them, to
save some space.

(Anyway, I've now grapped the snap with dependencies.)

I don't want to "install" Emacs, if that means doing something
more than just putting it into a folder.  I want to have
multiple Emacs versions, in different folders.  I just use the
executables that are in their bin folders.
