Ar an chéad lá de mí Márta, scríobh giacomo boffi:
some questions, related by my desire of using the latest beta and
xft branch as coexisting alternatives
0. is it possible to specify to configure the name of the executable
to be installed?
I’m not sure of this--I get
configure.ac:1052: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
with autoconf 2.59 . With the old configure file, no, you couldn’t
configure the name of the executable to be installed--in this case, that
shouldn’t really be an issue. An install of the latest trunk will overwrite
xemacs, but only with a symbolic link to xemacs-21.5-b19; xemacs-21.5-b18,
the XFT build, should still be there.
1. is it possible to somehow differentiate the resources used by
xemacs and the resources used by the xft branch?

recompile, and then run xemacs-21.5-b18 -name XFTXEmacs. All the XFT branch
resources will have to start with XFTXEmacs instead of XEmacs.
2. so far, so good: 21.5b19 installs the core lisp into its own
hierarchy, and the xft branch installs its core lisp under a
different (b18) tree
when xft will receive the status of b19, is there the potential for
XFT probably won’t ever receive the status of b19, if I understand it
correctly; by the time it’s merged into the trunk, we’ll have another beta
That said, yes, there’s a distinct possibility for conflict there.
