Emacs 22.2 for Windows already comes with libXpm.dll equipped, so it
should not be overwritten.

The PNG library needs updating.  There is a newer version available by
the GnuWin32 project.

Yes, when providing completion alternatives for stuff like \input or
\usepackage.  This requires, however, that `kpsewhich' is in PATH.  (Of
course the same is true for `latex' and similar binaries.)
