I'll take it back.  I've already got packages made (look at
http://va.debian.org/~dres/xemacs21.  They don't use your setup, but
they work.  And you could have offered it back knowing I had already
made packages rather than posting a general mail to -devel.

So, to all on devel consider this a ITP on xemacs21 and I would
appreciate anyone who has a chance to test the packages.  Apt line
that should work: "deb http://va.debian.org/~dres xemacs21/".
