The configuration succeeds (apart from some seemingly insignificant
problem with changing back to the top level directory) if the "export
EMACS" statement in the top level is disabled or removed.

Is this statement mandatory?  If I configure AUCTeX with something
like `EMACS=/path/to/emacs ./configure --prefix=/some/prefix', the
preview/configure script gets the given Emacs even if the statement
is disabled.  (... and the path in a set $EMACS will be used for all
sorts of variables, like $lispdir, $packagelispdir, etc., instead of
--prefix; don't know if this is correct)

Anyway, after a succeeded configuration I am left with a top-level
Makefile with the following paths:

prefix = d:/tmp/foo\ bar/emacs-21.3$(null)
exec_prefix = ${prefix}$(null)
libdir = ${exec_prefix}/lib$(null)
packagedatadir = d:/tmp/foo bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/auctex$(null)
datadir = ${prefix}/share$(null)
localstatedir = ${prefix}/var$(null)
infodir = ${prefix}/info$(null)
lispdir = d:/tmp/foo\ bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp$(null)
auctexstartfile=d:/tmp/foo\ bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/auctex.el
packagelispdir = d:/tmp/foo bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/auctex$(null)
packagedatadir = d:/tmp/foo bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/auctex$(null)

Quoting is definitely messed up here.  But I still don't know if this
is a problem with the MSYS shell or our scripts.
