I'm using Mule;
the manual doesn't say how you tell. Except, I configured XEmacs
without "--with-mule", so probably not.
You need to configure --with-mule to get multilingual functionality.
Surely one can build XEmacs without Mule, otherwise there
be an option at configuration.
You can, but it will ignore the core lisp/mule directory. It can't
handle those files. Unfortunately the package Makefile (actually a
mess of a dozen or so Makefiles and includes) isn't so smart. You
could reconfigure and rebuild to get a Mule XEmacs, or you can use
your existing non-Mule build, if first you tell the packages to build
without Mule with
BUILD_WITHOUT_MULE = t
in the Local.rules file in the toplevel package directory (the one
which contains the xemacs-packages and mule-packages hierarchies).
Also tex-jp.el _must_ be usable without Mule,
It's not. Cf this stanza in the AUCTeX Makefile:
ELCS += tex-jp.elc
since whilst it is being compiled by the Make process, Mule
In fact, it does. When present, Mule functionality infests Emacs at
the lowest possible level since it redefines the concept of buffer
text, changing the bit-level semantics of Finsert etc.
