I had used it a long time ago -- it did work at the time

Apparently you got it via cvs -- there should be an INSTALLL.cvs  
"manual" or an autogen.sh script.
You need to run autoconf and friends -- autogen.sh does exactly that.

A general question that erose lately with "configure"d packages (bbdb,  
EasyPG, ...) and Aquamacs:
What is the correct way to specify EMACS for compilation in batch  
mode? These configure scripts typically have an option --with-emacs=,  
but I am not sure what is the right value to pass in order to use  
Aquamacs for compilation... Any hints?
