There is a prebuilt binary distribution of Emacs for Windows-NT and
friends.  It is in <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/windows/emacs/latest>.  To be
recommended is the "fullbin" file.  The instructions are one directory
higher, in <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/windows/emacs/README>.  You will also
need Windows versions of tar and gzip, but I think there are pointers for
these programs in the README.  

As for Bison, I wouldn't know.
