Well, not under a bin directory.  Where are your other Emacs-related
files installed?

Yes.  At least if any distributor distributes CVS versions, I'll kill

compile cycle keyboarding?  Uh, what?

The texmf-dir is supposed to be the top of the TeX hierarchy (with
subdirectories tex, doc, bibtex, and a few others).  You seem to be
fond of installing data directories under */bin/*.  I don't suppose
that the programs themselves suggest such paths?

Does MINGW32 use the /c syntax?  Well, obviously it does.  What kind
of Emacs do you use?

I did not really want to know that...

Rest looks ok.  One thing worth noting is that it looks like you have
both mingw32 as well as Cygwin installed.  Not sure that is the best
idea.  What flavor of Emacs are you running?

Perhaps it would be an idea, if you are having problems, to report
them with M-x TeX-submit-bug-report, this gives us somewhat more
information.  The way the report looks up to now, things seem to be
properly installed and should work, as long as your have the required
(require 'tex-site) in your .emacs file.
