Looks like the *.elc files are in emacs23-common while the *.el files
are in emacs23-el (uncompiled and compressed). Do you still want them?

What integrated help is available in *.el files not available in *.elc?

Are you the editor of Month of the Hurd. People are asking for it, no
new issues since December 2010 (except Year of the Hurd).

Note: Since the version I've compiled has the same version number as the
released buggy version apt-get wants to upgrade emacs23.
You can put emacs23 on hold until a new official version is available as

dpkg --set-selections
emacs23-nox hold
emacs23-common hold
