There is badness[tm] somewhere in the Motif/CDE code in XEmacs. I
cannot get a build on Sun/Solaris to work properly either. Before you
get rid of this binary, try `xrdb </dev/null' first.
I have found that I cannot start an XEmacs on Sun/Solaris with Motif &
XIM/Motif support *and* specify a font via X Defaults without getting
a coredump deep in the initial frame initialization. Weird ...
After 'xrdb -load /dev/null', it still did not work.
