You really do not want to do this to yourself; there are many known
problems (including core dumps) with that version (the 21.1 series was
retired a year ago at patchlevel 14). Build 21.4.15 from source. On
Solaris it should be as simple as "./configure; make; make install",
although there are some optional facilities you may want to enable.
You could also get 21.1.14, but we no longer try to ensure that
packages support it. As far as I know all packaged Lisp still works
with 21.1.14, though.
There may be more recent Solaris binaries available from Sun or a
third party, but I don't know where.

This function is in the packages, specifically xemacs-base. You also
need the efs package if you want to use the built-in package
management tool to download package binaries.

It's the other way around. Building packages is a one-size-fits-all
thing, so we do that. Building the xemacs executable is platform-
specific, and we can't afford either the platforms or the management
effort to support binary distributions. We have a couple of
volunteers for Windows, but on Unix the build process is too easy for
volunteers to get very enthusiastic.
