Just saying "make install" without specifying INSTALL_DIR will
"install" the binaries in the `bin' subdirectory of the top-level
directory.  Is that good enough?

It looks for emacs.exe in the same directory where runemacs.exe lives.

This is not easy, since the `i386' part is not known by the binary,

This is possible.  We could, for example, add a -dir switch that would
tell runemacs.exe in which directory to look for emacs.exe.

That is, assuming that the "make install" technique somehow does not
satisfy your needs.
