OK. Iʼll work on that and the required makefile changes.

One thing this has thrown up that I donʼt understand is this:

Most of the emojis in emoji-sequences.txt can be made to use Noto
Color Emoji, but some canʼt. e.g.

#x24c2 Ⓜ

is stubbornly not being displayed using Noto Color Emoji, even though
that font has a glyph for it, and Iʼve added:

     (set-fontset-font "fontset-default" symbol-subgroup
                      '("Noto Color Emoji" . "iso10646-1") nil

just after the similar setting for Symbola in

Itʼs not being displayed with the default font, and setting
use-default-font-for-symbols to nil makes no difference. Itʼs using:

    ftcrhb:-GOOG-Noto Sans CJK 
JP-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#x3F8)

However, if I

     (set-fontset-font nil #x24c2
                      '("Noto Color Emoji" . "iso10646-1") nil

in the frame displaying the character, then it does use Noto Color
Emoji. What am I missing?
