While there's no actual reference to changes in unexelf, that I
see, in the ChangeLog, it seems that synching that up with Emacs 20.3
lets XEmacs compile and run peachy keen. I suppose I could simply diff
out what's changed and pick out the bits which helped this particular
problem, but I think that there were enough changes that maybe
somebody should just look it over and see what other platforms might
benefit from it.
