I run Linux instead of MacOS, but maybe this approach works there,
too?

At our site, we have a directory for software with subdirs for each
program, and subsubdirs for each version.  For example, 

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/sw/emacs/21.2

is sufficient to configure Emacs in such a way that subsequent `make'
and `make install' can be undone easily by just removing the
directory /usr/sw/emacs/21.2.  This works because Emacs is the only
program in that directory.

It's a very simple approach, but it works well enough for us.

hmm, frobbing this option might help avoid those questions--->

Do you have anything concrete like filenames so we might be able
to do something about it or at least explain why things are the
way they are ?

All under the single `Emacs.app' directory.  Seems clean enough to me.

PS: I'm not quite sure what you want w.r.t the non-english language support.
Do you also consider it as clutter ?  If so how and why ?

I installed the Win2K version of GNU Emacs and
it runs fine.  However I cannot find the file
.emacs or _emacs.  Where is this file supposed
to be?  Do I have to create it?

In Windows 2000, what is the equivalent of
the UNIX "Home" directory?  

Thank you in advance,
Jaime

Yes, that works for one paste, but when I position to another string
that I want to paste over, the C-y now pastes the word that was
previously killed. Because the killed data goes to the kill-ring,
whenever I operate on a new word, I have to hit C-y M-y and the number
of M-y's is going to be one more than before. So, if I want to operate
on 4 strings, I will have to hit C-y M-y M-y M-y on the fourth
string...
