    Thanks for making this available; unfortunately, it doesn't work for
me yet.  :^/

    On an otherwise-happy potato system with xemacs20 installed, I got the
following error while installing xemacs21:

Setting up xemacs21-basesupport (1999.07.13-3) ...

Setting up xemacs21-nomule (21.1.7-0.1) ...

(You may modify the symlinks there yourself if desired - see `man ln'.)
Updating xemacs21 (/usr/bin/xemacs21) to point to /usr/bin/xemacs-21.1.7-nomule.

    I'll be happy to supply any further useful information.
