Er, yes, that's precisely what I'm doing. This should work, surely? At
the moment, there are only .el files in these directories. Will this
prevent XEmacs from recognising the directories as `load-path'
What does "install" mean? It means, primarily, that files get copied to
/usr/local/share/.... So why would /usr/local/share/.... work, but my
source directory not? I'll try compiling all the packages and see if
that makes a difference.
