To begin with, a simple run through the INSTALL yields:

(1) Separate build and source dir compilation doesn't seem to work; e.g.:

       mkdir /tmp/build; cd /tmp/build; /usr/local/src/xtla/configure; make

(2) Installation is seriously weird -- where do the files get installed?!?

    The documentation says:

       a) GNU Emacs: lisp files goto ~/emacs-lisp and info files to ~/info,
          the PACKAGEDIR is ~/.

    however, after doing `make install-pkg', I still seem to have no
    ~/emacs-lisp dir.

    Also, if it _did_ work correctly, why is it installing into some random
    subdir my home dir instead of the usual
    $(prefix)/share/emacs/site-lisp?  It's a huge pain when packages pick
    random idiosyncratic directory structures; please just use the usual
    location (in which case the user doesn't have to munge their .emacs
    either).  Also there should be `install' target.

(3) The following compilation warning about `cl' make me nervous:

       Compiling xtla-defs.el
       In end of data:
       xtla-defs.el:2163:1:Warning: the following functions might not be 
defined at
           runtime: cl-defsubst-expand, cl-struct-setf-expander
       Wrote /usr/local/src/xtla/lisp/xtla-defs.elc

(4) Other various warnings that probably should be fixed up
    [It generally looks like `require' was not used religiously enough]:

       Compiling xtla.el
       In tla-bookmarks-get-partner-versions:
       xtla.el:3841:93:Warning: Function `intersection' from cl package called

       Compiling xtla-browse.el
       In end of data:

       Wrote /usr/local/src/xtla/lisp/xtla-browse.elc

Well, I've got to go try and find where on earth it installed things, so
more later.
