On ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/auctex/ there's an AUCTeX 11.82 version
bundled with a pre-build Emacs 22 (CVS) for Windows.

I think you need not only make, but also several other GNU or Unix
tools (configure, ...).  MSYS or Cygwin are sufficient[1].  For Emacs
you need these tools anyhow, since M-x grep, ... won't work without
MSYS or Cygwin.
