Er, yes, that's precisely what I'm doing. This should work,
I'm afraid not. The layout of the installed packages, that XEmacs is
looking for, is not the same as the layout for the package sources.
At the moment, there are only .el files in these directories. Will
this prevent XEmacs from recognising the directories as `load-path'
No it is not that the elc-files are missing. As I get it there is no
way that the sources can be used directly the way you are trying. (But
this is Lisp so there might be some magic I have missed. Have been
byte compiling the sources to long for thinking of any alternatives
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.
Install mean that the packages are byte compiled and installed in
another location than the sources. The file "Local.rules" controls the
details. Read the "INSTALL" file in the root of the package sources
for how to configure the build.
