Hmm, can't tell what's going wrong.  I'm also using Msys2/Mingw64 on
Win10 and don't see this issue.  I do:

$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure --without-texmf-dir --with-lispdir=.
$ make

When you install AUCTeX from anywhere else than ELPA, you need those
line, true.

True.  There were reports where the 2 lines above were even harmful when
installed from ELPA.

The reason I was asking it that active contributors don't use
use-package and we currently have this in the manual:

(use-package tex
  :ensure auctex)

If that's not right, we should change it (but it seems there is no
definitive answer to this ;-)

Indeed, Keita has installed it, so the issue is now resolved and should
be available via ELPA also sometimes soon.

Best, Arash
