In tex-site.el.  Did you generate it?  The respective targets in the
Makefile you sent are commented.

Anyway, I don't think it is a good idea to do all this hand editing and
to execute only parts of the build and install routine.  As you've seen
this will only leave you with a broken installation.

If we cannot identify the cause of the infinite loops during
configuration, a better alternative to hand editing would be to use the
pre-built XEmacs package provided on the AUCTeX web site, IMO.  Assuming
this fits your preferences of where to install software for XEmacs on
your machine.
