Wow. Just tried it:

  In GNU Emacs 21.2 (i686-pc-cygwin, X toolkit)
   of 2002-09-12 on hestia
  configured using `configure  \
    --prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libexecdir=/usr/sbin --localstatedir=/var \
    --datadir=/usr/share --without-toolkit-scroll-bars'
  
  ...
  
  Important settings:
    value of $LC_ALL: nil
    value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
    value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
    value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
    value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
    value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
    value of $LC_TIME: nil
    value of $LANG: C
    locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
    default-enable-multibyte-characters: t
  GNU Emacs 21.2 (i686-pc-cygwin, X toolkit) of 2002-09-12 on hestia

It works really out of the box. Anyway this is not a NTEmacs. This is
a cygwin emacs that is compiled with the cygwin library. NTEmacs is
compiled with the -mno-cygwin flag. The cygwin emacs is a pure X11
emacs. Anyway it might be useful for debugging NTEmacs with gdb. (Do
you remember the long discussion between Eli and Stefan for some
months.)
