This is strange, because /Users/artemio/.xemacs/xemacs-packages/ etc/
is writable by me (artemio). The installation steps I followed were
the following: ...

This sounds more like ./mkinstalldirs could not be executed.  Take a
look at its first line: do you have a shell with the given path name?
Is its executable bit set?

After reviewing the make install output, I agree with you that the
problem is ./mkinstalldirs, since no directory under ~/.xemacs/ xemacs- packages/lisp/auctex/ get installed. The shell in the first line of ./
mkinstalldirs is /bin/sh, which I of course can run:

[tillina:~] artemio% l  /bin/sh
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root  wheel  581636 Mar 21 00:39 /bin/sh

Uh, I meant "is the executable bit of ./mkinstalldirs set"?  That
should have happened when unpacking.


After downloading auctex from CVS from scratch, I have been able to eliminate all of the ./mkinstalldirs "permission denied" errors. However, "make install" still fails:

xemacs exiting.
Symbol's function definition is void: update-autoloads-from- directorymake[1]: *** [install-metadata] Error 255
make: *** [install] Error 2

If I open a tex file in xemacs, auctex fails to load with the enclosed backtrace. Any idea what may be going on (it's driving me nuts)?

Thanks a lot,
