Try rereading README.packages :-)
This suggestion really helped! Thanks! :)
strace also helped, it was stuck on DNS resolution, repeatedly bombing
DNS servers with a query. When I changed DISPLAY from :0.0 to 127.1:0.0,
XEmacs started just fine.
I can use -debug-init now, and here is the backtrace I get upon startup,
just `./xemacs -debug-init':
Singaling: (wring-type-argument stringp, nil)
load(nil t t t)
I'll try to look into that, but not immediately. Does it look familiar?
