You need to configure --with-mule to get multilingual functionality.
Thanks, I understand that now. Maybe --with-mule should be made the

You can, but it will ignore the core lisp/mule directory. It
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).

It's not. Cf this stanza in the AUCTeX Makefile:

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.
Ah. I would presume there's not a lot of call for a non-Mule XEmacs any
