This is by design. --with-package-prefix is designed to simplify
package-path specification. It omits last-package-path entirely and
hard-codes early-package-path to ~/.xemacs.
FWIW, I don't see much point in arguing about the defaults. IMHO the
package path specification stuff is basically broken from the point of
view of allowing users to say what they want simply.

Are you sure? I suspect that you switched from --package-path to
You're right, I did. Although at this point, I don't remember exactly why. I
use a script to build, and I seem to recall that at one point when I tried to
build from CVS, I got some sort of error from configure related to
--package-path. Did --package-path have a different name before, maybe prior to
the switch to autoconf-2.5?
Whatever the error was, it caused me to look at the path options, and that's
when I changed.
