Hi you brainy lot, :) I'd appreciate your solutions.  Thanks & regards.

Goal:     Sort unix mbox into chronological order, removing duplicates
Platform: Sun/Oracle SPARC Solaris 10 or 11
Done:  1. Installed latest binary xemacs-21.1.3-sparc-sun-solaris2.6.tar.gz
       2. Installed xemacs-all-packages.tar.gz containing vm-8.09
       3. Launched XEmacs > Apps > Read Mail (VM).  Result:-

--**-XEmacs: *Warnings-Show*
Loading vm...done
Loading vm...
Loading cus-face...done
Loading cus-face...
Wrong number of arguments: #<compiled-function (face spec &optional frame)
"...(53)" [spec atts display face-spec-set-match-display frame face
custom-face-display apply face-custom-attributes-set put nil] 5 646941>, 4
--**-XEmacs: *scratch*
(1) (warning/warning) Autoload error in:
Symbol's function definition is void: add-one-shot-hook

       4. Options > Edit Faces (nothing flagged there needing attention)
       5. Try installing vm-8.1.1 instead.  Result:-
# pwd

# ls
etc       info      lib-src   lisp      man       pkginfo   vm-8.1.1

# cd vm-8.1.1

So the issue with running vm 8.0.9 that XEmacs 21.1.3 autoloads actually appears
to be an issue with custom face compiled into XEmacs but am way out of my depth.
