[AUCTeX] Failure to install AUCTeX under Windows XT

I have used AUCTeX under Windows 98/2000 successfully for several years and it 
is a great package.  But I am struggling to install AUCTeX 11.55 under Emacs  
21.3 on my new Windows XP machine.  I think perhaps the installation procedure 
has become more complicated?

I have installed Emacs and the MSYS program (successfully, I think).  I have 
downloaded and unpacked the auctex-11.53 files to the c:/temp directory.

I then typed this in the MSYS shell:

$ ./configure --prefix="c:/Program Files/emacs-21.3" --with-emacs="c:/Program 

and I get the following message:

checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/install -c
checking for c:/Program... c:/Program Files/emacs-21.3/bin/runemacs.exe
checking if c:/Program Files/emacs-21.3/bin/runemacs.exe is XEmacs... cat: 
./conftest-2440: No such file or directory
configure: error: Unable to run c:/Program Files/emacs-21.3/bin/runemacs.exe!  

I have tried various different commands, each time altering the value of 
"with-emacs" but to no success.  I have checked that runemacs.exe is definitely 
in c:/Program Files/emacs-21.3/bin/

Can you shed any light on what is going wrong?  Sorry to bother you and thanks 
for your time.
