I would be surprised to hear that the past tense here is really
appropriate when Fabrice just starts trying to compile Emacs.  Fabrice
has put together a complete TeX/editing solution for Windows called
XEmTeX several years ago that was intended to be used by inexperienced
users.  XEmacs offered a superior GUI feature set and reasonable
stability particularly under Windows at that time.  utf-8 was not a
topic for TeX or anything else.  AUCTeX was supported and installed in
its current version out of the box.

I think that considering ongoing TeX developments, the current state of
Emacs warrants a reevaluation, and the same might be somewhat sadly said
about the current state of XEmacs.  I am certainly glad that a system
integrator of Fabrice's level is putting Emacs through the motions.
