Guess what?  You're right. :-(

Ok, I checked old mailcrypt versions and found that the remove script
failed to clean /usr/share/emacs/*/site-lisp/mailcrypt/CompilationLog.gz
for versions 3.5.4-5 and 3.5.5-{1,2,3,4}, while former and later
versions are safe (a typo somehow slipped through in those versions).

The time window is 1999-10-12 through 1999-12-12 (exactly two months).

According to their changelog.Debian, the relevant emacs{19,20} version
that were around at that time are:

emacs19: 19.34-21
emacs20: from 20.3-11 to 20.4-3

Thus, I guess I only need to clean:

Is it ok if I clean that old cruft in

Are there any suggestion on the best way to do it?  (My plan is rm -f

BTW: It seems to me that the current emacs20 installs its
.../doc/emacs20 stuff only in /usr/doc/emacs20, with no compatibility
links.  Well, I'm not sure, but on my system I have:
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         1024 Aug  1  2000 /usr/doc/emacs20
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         1024 Oct 15  1999 /usr/share/doc/emacs20
(look at the dates as well).
