Well, I mentioned several times that the Makefile target
"xemacs-package" is used for the configuration and building of XEmacs
packages and even quoted the respective Makefile rule in the last
mail.  I doubt I can be of much more help than that.

It is explained in the documentation.  I quote from INSTALL:

     This option is used for specifying a TDS-compliant directory
     hierarchy.  Using `--with-texmf-dir=/DIR' you can specify where
     the TeX TDS directory hierarchy resides, and the TeX files will
     get installed in `/DIR/tex/latex/preview/'.

     If you use the `--without-texmf-dir' option, the TeX-related files
     will be kept in the Emacs Lisp tree, and at runtime the
     `TEXINPUTS' environment variable will be made to point there.  You
     can install those files into your own TeX tree at some later time
     with `M-x preview-install-styles RET'.

Since an XEmacs package has to be contained within the Emacs Lisp
tree, you need to use that option, and that's exactly what the
"xemacs-package" target in does.
