I was reading the README in /usr/local/share/xemacs-21.5.b31/etc,
and they talk about an option called "install-bootstrap-packages"
and I was wondering if that is a possible mechanism for getting the two
packages installed for bootstrapping the rest of the package system?
Not sure, just thought I would point it out.
The README continues:
"you may choose what packages you wish to include in
bootstrap.tar.gz, but to make list-packages work you need to include at
least xemacs-base, dired, and efs. The tarball should unpack directly as
an xemacs-packages tree (and optionaly, a mule-packages tree."
I was wondering if we included just the 2 (or 3) files they mention, but
no others, would that be a way to get the package system up enough to be
able to get it going?
As a side note, I was able to install without dired, so I am not sure if
that is needed to actually install the package system--didn't seem to
