They should respond to the --help command line option.

Those files were copied from the source directories in order to
provide a bare minimum of information.  Having INSTALL files in that
directory would not be sensible anyway because that _is_ already an
installed directory tree.

Well, it contains a Makefile for generating the Emacs+AUCTeX
installation, i.e. for building and installing Emacs and AUCTeX.

More like ready to be built.  Those are bare sources.

nt/INSTALL contains a table with combinations of shell and make
versions working or not working for building Emacs.  That table seems
to suggest that you will be out of luck with Cygwin make.

Above you wrote that the precompiled version is working fine.  So
what's the problem?
