Anyway, I don't think it is a good idea to do all this hand editing and
to execute only parts of the build and install routine.  As you've seen
this will only leave you with a broken installation.

If we cannot identify the cause of the infinite loops during
configuration, a better alternative to hand editing would be to use the
pre-built XEmacs package provided on the AUCTeX web site, IMO.  Assuming
this fits your preferences of where to install software for XEmacs on
your machine.

Hi Ralf:

I guess you are right. Do you know where I can learn how to install the
XEmacs package? I actually tried that first, but I couldn't figure it
out. So, I decided to have a go at the source not realizing that it
would be so difficult. Surely, there must be other Solaris x86 shops
that have installed from source... Well, at least if they have problems,
they will see this thread now.
