Loading ESS on windows is much easier than the document you are reading
suggests.  The use of "make" and so forth is for Unix.  Read the ESS document
  doc/README.SPLUS4WIN where it says

The easiest way to install ESS on Windows machines is to place the
unzipped directory tree on the machine in, for specificity,
Then add the following line to your ~/_emacs (or ~/.emacs) file:
  (load-file "c:/emacs/ess-5.1.18/lisp/ess-site.el")

For more detail see the file
in the main ess directory and go to line 420 where it gives the Windows
installation information in great detail.  The simpler information above
is all that is really needed.
