 Dunno.  Rob Browning will...  I hope he's on the list.

 I will build XEmacs with athena3d.

 Nope.  Blame it on James.  He missed something in a fairly
 complicated build setup, and it's got the wrong directory compiled
 in.  I'm going to try and have one out by the end of next week...

 I hope it's ready by then.  I think I understand the setup pretty
 well now...

 Please downgrade to the `slink' version until then.
