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/".
