I used the latest CVS sources, too, and basically your configure
above (plus a few tweaks I have to have to build here), and I still
don't see the modules/auto-autoloads getting loaded. Here's my
../xemacs-21.5/configure --prefix=/usr/local/test --mail-locking=flock --extra-verbose
--dynamic=yes --with-dialogs=athena --with-widgets=athena --with-site-lisp=no
--with-site-modules --with-mule --with-xfs --debug --error-checking=all
--memory-usage-stats --with-clash-detection --external-widget
Oh, wait a minute. There *is* a difference here. You are building in
the source tree and I'm not. Sorry, but I *have* to go get some sleep
now. Can you try building elsewhere and see if the problem goes away?
If so, I'll see what I can do about fixing the source tree build
tomorrow. If you don't have time for that experiment, I'll try it
myself in the morning.
I just configured and built inside the source tree with the configure
options above. I'm still not getting the line you saw, Steve. The only
relevant part of the build I can see is this:
Now my configure options aren't *exactly* the same as yours, but the
differences shouldn't affect modules at all. I don't know why the
modules/auto-autoloads.el file is getting written twice. I'll check
that out. But so far I haven't been able to reproduce the behavior
you're seeing. In what part of the build does it happen?
