Well, so that the others may benefit from your praise, I am taking the
liberty of forwarding this to the developer list.

While this may seem like nothing to do you, it may constitute a large
hurdle for somebody else.  The installation procedure is not supposed
to leave non-working paths in tex-site.el: we are taking large pains
so that Windows-typical paths work correctly.  If we fail doing that
somewhere, we would want to fix this.

Can you remember or reproduce the exact way you called configure, and
could you post the resulting tex-site.el and, if possible, say what
exactly was the problem with the path the installation procedure put

This would be very appreciated.
