I've found building Emacs on Windows to be difficult, although I've
written down what works on

You seem to be trying to build a "native Windows" binary, as opposed
to a Cygwin binary.  Is that right?  If so, I suggest you use MingW
and follow the instructions at -- it
works for me.  If that fails, you can always try getting a pre-built
binary from
-- it's a few months old but the binaries at that site have always
worked fine for me.
If you want to build a Cygwin binary, install gcc 4 from source (yes,
that's a pain, but it works "out of the box") and then build Emacs
with the usual Unix-style "./configure; make" (i.e., use ./configure
instead of nt/configure.bat).
