This is not a big loss since the version of AUCTeX distributed with
XEmacs is ancient anyway.

Not sure if this is the cause, but using forward slashes instead of
backslashes is usually safer.

What means "did not work"?

What does the output show just before the error?  Can you debug which
command in the `install-metadata' target fails?

Hm, does your XEmacs claim to have MULE support?  When you run
`configure' there is somewhere output like "checking for MULE
support".  What's the result of this test?
