Problems building CVS Emacs on Windows XP using MinGW

When I try to build CVS Emacs on Windows XP using MinGW (following the
instructions in emacs/nt/INSTALL, of course), I get this error during
"make bootstrap":

   Generating autoloads for language/vietnamese.el...
   Scan error: "Unbalanced parentheses", 3917, 3960
   mingw32-make[1]: *** [autoloads] Error 255
   mingw32-make[1]: Leaving directory `c:/franl/cvs/emacs/lisp'
   mingw32-make: *** [bootstrap-gmake] Error 2

If I remove the multibyte characters from vietnamese.el, I get past the
above error but then I get a series of byte-compiler errors:

   Compiling gnus/legacy-gnus-agent.el

   In toplevel form:
   gnus/legacy-gnus-agent.el:28:1:Error: Symbol's value as variable is void: 


   Compiling international/ja-dic-utl.el

   In toplevel form:
   ja-dic-utl.el:100:60:Warning: reference to free variable `�����s'
   ja-dic-utl.el:100:71:Warning: reference to free variable `��'
   ja-dic-utl.el:100:76:Warning: reference to free variable `��K'
   ja-dic-utl.el:100:82:Warning: reference to free variable
   ja-dic-utl.el:100:103:Error: Invalid read syntax: ")"

Does anyone else see this?

I'm configuring the sources with this command:

   ./configure.bat --prefix="c:/apps/emacs-cvs" --with-gcc --no-cygwin 
--without-xpm --without-png --without-jpeg --without-tiff --without-gif

and I have the MinGW bin directory ahead of my Cygwin bin directory in
my PATH.
