	Sorry about that. I have now upgraded to XEmacs21.4.10. Ran the
configure with the XEmacs path as you suggested, after deleting the GS
check lines from configure.ini, as below

$ configure --with-xemacs="c:/XEmacs/XEmacs-21.4.10/i586-pc-win32/xemacs.exe"

The same error as earlier is encountered as shown below.

checking for install-info... /bin/true
checking for gs... NONE
configure: error: gs not found!  Aborting!
You must install Ghostscript for preview to work.

Seems like deleting that two lines from configure.ini doesnt help. There 
is a whole paragraph in configure, checking for GS, lines 1897 to 1943. 
Should I delete that too and run configure?

	Could you enlighten me as to what this link is supposed to do? Do 
you mean to say that a link(shortcut in windows slang) to gswin32.exe by 
the name gs would do the trick? If you could tell me what the function of 
this link I may be able to figure out what to do. If its easy that might 
be better to do that fudging the configure file.

	If understand properly, this is all if the configure skips over 
the GS check...which is not happening now.

	I will see how that is done in windows, as of now I dont know. 
Maybe copy gswin32.exe to gs.exe!?

	I thought  you are asking me to write to that address... and 
had hence written there maybe two days back.
