You are right, this would be better.  However, the same line
then would not work for Emacs, so we need something still
better.  Maybe something like

BATCH=$(EMACS) -batch -q
       -eval '(add-to-list 'load-path "$(lispdir)")'

but that is still difficult with all the quoting and escaping of
quoting.  Does anyone here know how to make this work?

Hello Everyone,

First of all thanks for creating such a great tool!! Kudos Dominik!!

Now, I updated orgmode and had minor problems with the installation.
The problem was because I use XEmacs so it requires the noutline.el
installed. Since I edited the following entries:

# Where local software is found

# Where local lisp files go.
lispdir = $(prefix)/share/emacs

when I type 'make install-noutline' it installs it in $(lispdir),
which is what I wanted (i.e., not in the standard lisp directory). The
$(lispdir) is of course added to the load-path in my init.el, but for
the remaining compilation of org.el it won't know to look for
noutline.el in there.

Now, since we need noutline.el to compile org.el for XEmacs and we
just installed it in $(lispdir), shouldn't the following line:

BATCH=$(EMACS) -batch -q

read like this instead:

BATCH=$(EMACS) -batch -q -l $(lispdir)/noutline

That is where my problem was and by making the change above it was
fixed. Notice that if $(lispdir) is set to the standard lisp directory
then the problem won't arise.

Well, I hope that this helps in case others encounter the same problem.

Thanks again,
