Yes, it is. If it unsupported, then perhaps it can be made so, and in the
meantime, you know you that know that you are wasting your time.

You still haven't really said what that task is. If you need Emacs and
only emacs, then you or someone has to fix the build. If you need a
general purpose text editor, then try another one that does support your
platform. GNU ed will probably run an it has a much simpler build.

If you need to open some files, replace some stuff and save it, then perl
will probably do better still.

If you want to fix the build, then, I would say that a bug report is a
reasonable place to start.
