You can use the Cygwin's distributed Emacs (21.2) - just use setup to
download/install it. If you want to compile and install Emacs yourself,
You'll have to get it from CVS (Emacs 22.0.50), this build as is.

To get the CVS emacs do:

export CVS_RSH="ssh"
cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs co emacs

Then install it as you would do on UNIX, i.e.
    make bootstarp
    make install
