Hm, I guess you're right. Weird.

No, I don't think that's better for anybody. I would rather that the
default be a single package root for the system and one for the user.
If we decide to conform to Mac practice and have Carbon search in
/Library and ~/Library, we shouldn't search in $prefix or ~/.xemacs at
all, by default.
I will say that if you change it, I promise to completely ignore all
bug reports about it. ;-)
