These are the core distribution without bytecompiled lisp and without
processed texinfo manuals. (You only need one of these two files: the
.bz2 file has been compressed with bzip2 and is therefore smaller than

If you are on a fast machine with a possibly slow connection to the
FTP site, one of these tarballs is all you need for the base XEmacs.
Untar it, run 'configure', then run `make' and `make install'.
Note that you will still need the XEmacs packages. Please see the
file README.packages in the root of the source directory.
This tarball is the bytecompiled lisp of all the lisp (.el) files
included in the above tarball. Bytecompiling all of XEmacs Lisp

installed and your machine has any kind of decent speed, it is quicker
to run `make info' from the toplevel and rebuild it yourself than it
is to download and untar it. Note that GNU texinfo-3.12 or later is
A patch to upgrade from XEmacs 21.1.11 is also available:
After applying the patch, please run the command 'touch configure' in
order to make sure 'configure' is newer than 'configure.in'.
