The latter. (Yep ...)
Note that I'm perfectly fine with the (that would be rude) part...

How do you do that?
From the CVS tree, "make && make install". There is a set of
there, and a configuration file named Local.rules. I also have
"symlink = t" in that file to perform an "ln -s"-only installation.
I believe the only thing to modify in Local.rules to comply with an
installation in share/ is the variable XEMACS_INSTALLED_PACKAGES_ROOT
that should be set to /usr/local/share/xemacs. This is what I have been
doing for years.

Probably not---I don't even know what infrastructure you're using :-)
Now you know :-)
One last thing: I'm concerned with the situation where people use both
21.4 and 21.5. Will they need to duplicate their installed packages ?
