Thanks for working on this !
While you're at it, I have a request: the build script says that the
executable searches for packages in ~/.xemacs OR in the application
bundle. I would like it to honor the Unix packages locations, or at least
provide ways to read user-specific places, then site-specific places, and
then the application bundle.
Something like [/Users/myself]/Libraries/Application Support/...) would
do it probably. I already have an X11 XEmacs installed on my Mac Book,
and it would be painless to symlink /usr/local/share/xemacs to some
place more along the Mac lines.
Well, in the Mac Carbon paradigm, which is the most sensible paradigm for
desktop machines, the “site-specific” idea is kind of irrelevant. So I don’t
think there exists a particularly clean way to do this, and if we’re going
to do ugly hacks, linking /usr/local/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages to
~/.xemacs/xemacs-packages is probably the simplest and most effective
I suppose though it would make sense and be more userfriendly to look at the
most commonly used prefixes to see if the corresponding directories exist;
on my machine I have /usr/local (general GNU stuff built from source) and
/opt/local (DarwinPorts); are there further conventions for these things on
On the quay of the little Black Sea port, where the rescued pair came once

assumed to be mad, though it may only have been indiscriminating. (Saki)
