I wouldn't bother with 21.4 if I were you. The reason things are
screwed up now is undoubtedly that I put in some patches for people
(one was Alexei Mahotkin, I forget the other offhand) who said they
simply could not build their prefrred config in their environment
(athena was getting pulled in whether or not they wanted it in one
case), and I couldn't find a way either.
So unless you're repairing a similarly wedged situation, I'm not going
to be real happy about making any changes to the ./configure. That
whole area needs a complete rewrite, and I doubt I'm going to let that
Currently I have not heard of anyone who cannot get XEmacs configured
and built with --with-widgets=<toolkit>, and if toolkit==athena, they
pretty much must specify --with-athena=<flavor> as well.
As long as giving the proper incantations leads to a build, it's good
enough for me.
