If you want to build with makeemx.bat, then yes.  But I doubt that you
really want that, since EMX produces DOS programs, not Windows
programs, which will limit you in several subtle ways, since
interaction between Emacs and DOS subprograms has drawbacks (for
example, only one DOS subprocess can be active at any given time).
