I installed binaries of Emacs 24.4 for Windows and want to install the support libraries described in the Emacs for Windows README. The latest precompiled libraries are available from the ezwinports project, but installing them is a little time-consuming. I have to select all of the libraries mentioned in Emacs's README, scan the ezwinports README for any further prerequisites, and download each one of the zip archives. Then unpack them, move them to a permanent location, and add the individual directories to my
PATH variable. There are duplicate files within these archives, so I am wary of unpacking them all to the same directory without checking that they are identical.
Is there an automated way to do this?
