It's called AUCTeX, not AuCTeX.

According to the installation instructions you are not supposed to use
`(require 'tex-site)'.  With XEmacs AUCTeX will be activated
automatically once installed.

I don't know where this comes from.  What kind of environment are you
using for configuration?

What does the shell used for configuration return if you execute the
if test "a" = "a" -a "b" = "b"; then echo "yes"; else echo "no"; fi

Looks like Window's find utility is found in PATH before the one of
your build environment.
