Hi Ralf!

Sorry for not writing earlier. I was in Holidays for one week.

The shell finds an Emacs in a Cygwin path.  This looks a bit messed
up.  Can you make sure that the MSYS/MinGW and Cygwin stuff
(executables, libs, etc.) don't mix?  Maybe this will help already.
If it doesn't, please send the file config.log which you should find
in AUCTeX's build directory.  (Zip it before sending.)

Argh, no good, my fault. This should have been deleted in my $path, I'm really sorry.

Again. Now with the snapshot auctex-20050806-a.

In Mingw I have to set the path-variable to my needs, this is GhostScript, TeXLive and the rest who has aready been in path:

$ PATH=".:/usr/local/bin:/mingw/bin:/bin: \

$ export PATH

After that the installation runs through without any problems and with

$ ./configure --prefix=g:/tst/emacs-21.3 \

and then make and then make install. Perhaps this could be a hint in the installation guide for Windows users?

Do you still need my config.log file?

I would not be surprised if this was a result of MinGW and Cygwin
stuff being mixed.

Hm, sorry here, my working installation has been done with the correct path and sometimes this problems appear. Please allow me some more weeks to look into this and hopefully find out more.

Best regards
