I see exactly the same problems as Juanma and everybody else trying to
get the autotools stuff working again on Windows:

Checking whether you have the necessary tools...
(Read INSTALL.REPO for more details on building Emacs)

Checking for autoconf (need at least version 2.65)...
Checking for automake (need at least version 1.11)...
Checking for pkg-config (need at least version 0.9.0)...
Checking for pkg.m4...
Can't locate Automake/Getopt.pm in @INC (@INC contains: 
/usr/share/automake-1.11 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8/msys /usr/lib/perl5/5.8

This all seems to be caused by the crazy mixture of tools required to
get a native Win32 emacs built. The notes in nt/INSTALL are very useful
but it is still quite some way from there to having a working toolchain.
