I would like to install AUCTeX myself on a Unix machine where I don't
have root permission. I downloaded that latest version of AUCTeX, ran
.configure and make but make install failed. I couldn't see how to
have it install in a directory where I have write permission.

some stuff skipped here which shows I don't know what I am doing and haven't properly read the documentation

It might be possible to walk you all the way through a manual
installation, pointing out the instructions piece by piece that you
missed on the first go.  But I think it would be a waste of both your
and our time.

Please just download the precompiled XEmacs package from AUCTeX's
download page and use either the package manager to install it, or
just unpack it into your personal package directory.

This was very good advice. I did this and it all seems fine. Menus, buttons and syntax highlighting all are working as they should. Looks very nice.

Thanks for the assistance
