A colleague of mine was able to install xemacs on his Mac. I took a
copy of his /sw directory, moving my /sw out of the way. It works
perfectly for him, but on my computer it fails in exactly the same
way. This happens even if I create a new user on my machine, so it
can't have anything to do with my .emacs file or environment settings.
It must have something to do with other system files. Does anybody
have any idea where to start looking for the culprit?
Try renaming /usr/local and see if it works. I've had problems
because, apparently, some programs were finding some libraries there
that didn't match with what they needed. One symptom was that code
that used to compile would no longer compile, failing with undefined
symbols (SaveFP, RestFP, and curses ones, mostly.) This happened even
when trying to install code from source with fink.
