There has been a discussion on including the DLLs in the next
emacs-22.*-bin-i386.zip file in July, see
<http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.bugs/15799/focus=74093>.  I don't
know about the plans of Jason (IIRC, he has built the Windows
binaries), i.e. if he wants to provide "emacs-22.1-a-bin-i386.zip"
(including image DLLs) or do this for Emacs 22.2.

Bye, Reiner.
