No. I'm really unsure of what your problem is or of what you're trying
to do. (The paths subsystem should be able to pick up your packages
automatically if they're in a place XEmacs knows about.) Could you
pkgsrc ships an "xemacs" (21.4) or "xemacs-current" (21.5) package,
an "xemacs-packages" package. The latter until noe only untared the
individual xemacs package tarballs, and I am in the process of changing
that, in order to be able to patch individual distribution files.
The xemacs packages come with compiled elisp files; when I patch source
files, I need to recompile them. Now, pkgsrc is about building from
source. In the general case, somebody will install an xemacs, and then
install xemacs-packages to use with it. During the install process, the
elisp files will be in some arbitrary place, but not where the
(previously compiled) xemacs expects them.
To compile those files, xemacs has to be taught about this arbitrary
location. The GNU Emacs "normal-top-level-add-subdirs-to-load-path"
appears to be a handy way to do that.
