I've never compiled a release tarball for Emacs with mingw,
however, I can offer my experiences for compiling the CVS
version.  I think the one problem you might find (and that I
certainly ran into a few times) is the problem of end-of-lines in
files needing to be unix rather than dos.  With the wincvs port
of cvs, this involved checking out files using the --lf option.
If you unpack tarballs with winzip, I think there's an option to
"preserve end of line encoding" or something similar.

Other than that, none of the steps you went through seemed
unreasonable ;).
