It still does. That's one of several reasons why --with-mule _still
defaults to_ *no*. Jamie chose to go with a vendor which doesn't offer
a non-mule build (maybe you have some pull with them ;-). He chooses
not to build XEmacs himself.
Jamie, I sympathize with you, but I can't help you very much under
those circumstances. I have neither the time nor the knowledge to
rewrite Mule for 21.4.11, and even if I did, I'd have to veto the
patch---too destabilizing for the people who do need Mule. You don't,
in fact you'd clearly be happier with the no-mule build.
As for the Cocoa/Aqua port, there are rumors of interest. I have no
idea how serious those developers are, I encouraged them to get in
touch, but haven't heard back. Oh well. (No, I'm not giving up, but
that's not a good sign.)
