While playing with dvc (http://download.gna.org/dvc/
) and trying to get
it working with xemacs, I came across an issue. In dvc-build.el,
there's some code that is intended to print out some Local Variables
lines to a file. Unfortunately, xemacs finds these lines and thinks
these are the local variables for this file. I think emacs doesn't have
this problem. Should xemacs be a little pickier about finding these?
The workaround for this is simple, though, and is documented. I just
added a ^L near the end of the file so xemacs stops looking.
 With a few minor changes I can get dvc to compile. The result
doesn't work because for some reason some variable is unbound. I tried
loading the file that defines it, but that doesn't work either. It is
defined, but when I load dvc-load.el, it's unbound again. And the
building dvc now causes warnings about every package having its
auto-autoloads already being loaded.
