You're right, I could'nt find too much in your config.log. However, it
is a little bit irritating, that configure tries to write
"c:/c/tmp/tramp-2.2.0/lisp/tramp-loaddefs". Maybe it is a problem with
gnuwin32 paths?

In general, it is OK. There might be some configuration options active
like the "dav" and "davs" methods, which won't run under MS Windows, but
it doesn't hurt as long as you don't use them.

For the link with password.el: my configure script simply calls "ln -s",
which might be not so useful in your case. But if you copy password.el
from the contrib into the lisp library, password caching shall work for
you as well.
