Are you able to pinpoint the exact command which caused the error?  Or
at least the make target?

In case make pauses when the error happens, the command should be close
to the bottom of the output.  In case you need to capture the output to
a file you can use something like `make install 2>&1 | tee make.out'.
The output will then be sent to the terminal as well as to the file

FWIW, I'm compiling AUCTeX regularly with a development Emacs on
GNU/Linux and don't get an error.
