I'm currently using 
(defconst tramp-version "$Id: tramp.el,v 2.22 2001/05/28 09:54:45 grossjoh Exp 
which works quite well for what I do.  However, it is a bit dated, so
I decided to install 2.0.35 instead.  It took me a while to figure out
that GNU make 3.74 was to old to use, but now, with 3.80, I can at
least run make.  I tried to install for the following emacsen:

emacs 20.3
xemacs 20.4
emacs 21.1
xemacs 21.1

I completely failed on the first two:

./configure --with-emacs --prefix=/software/tramp-2.0.34 
make USE_CONTRIB=1 all
emacs --no-site-file -batch --eval "(add-to-list 'load-path \".\")"  --eval "(ad
d-to-list 'load-path \"../contrib\")" -f batch-byte-compile  tramp-efs.el
While compiling toplevel forms in file /software/tramp-2.0.34/tramp-2.0.34/lisp/
  !! Args out of range ((1 33))

  !! File error (("Cannot open load file" "timer"))

And of course again the texinfo-bug (I'm using 4.5)

Now, with emacs 21.1 I can actually run the make, but the install
fails, as it expects the target directories to exist.  Fixing that, I
end up with an installed version.  So I now run emacs -q and then

;; Which Emacs are we running? 
(if (boundp 'running-xemacs)
    (setq emacs-name "xemacs")          ; XEmacs
  (setq emacs-name "emacs")             ; GNU Emacs
;; add to load-path
(add-to-list 'load-path (concat "/software/tramp-2.0.34/share/" emacs-name "/" 
                   (int-to-string emacs-major-version) "." 
                   (int-to-string emacs-minor-version) "/site-lisp"))
(add-to-list 'Info-default-directory-list "/software/tramp-2.0.34/info/")
(require 'tramp)

But --- Emacs seems unable to see the connection which actually exists
(it times out after 60s, even though the *tramp...* buffer shows me
that I did log in).

And xemacs 21.1?  It tries to make an ftp-connection...

Well, I guess I'm doing something very, very stupid --- but what?  It
must be obvious, since I'm the first to ask, but I simply have no clue
as to what the reason could be.

BTW, 2.0.35 shows basically the same behaviour...


PS: I don't include full debugging info as I assume I'm doing
    somethind very basic wrong --- but I can of course provide you
    with any info you require.
