There is no such thing as THE site lisp dir.

It's customary to have site lisp directories  in places such as:

$ locate site-lisp|sed -e s=site-lisp/.*=site-lisp= |sort -u

/usr/local/share/emacs/21.2/site-lisp
/usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp
/usr/local/share/emacs/old-site-lisp
/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp
/usr/local/src/emacs/emacs-21.2/site-lisp
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp

but they're are used only if put on the load-path by some code.


There is  this variable site-run-file  which indicate the name  of the
file to load site specific lisp.   You'll write in this file the paths
from  where   you  load  your   site-specific  code  (the   site  lisp
directories).

This file is  loaded using the load-path which is  hard wired into the
emacs executable:

address@hidden pascal]$ strings `which emacs`|grep site-lisp

/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp:/local/share/emacs/site-lisp:/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim:/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/lisp

Do not adjust your mind, there is a fault in reality.
