Oh, in that case, that's the problem. Back in the dark ages, there
was no reasonable alternative to a 7-bit ISO encoding for the Mule
files, but a no-Mule XEmacs will read those as syntax errors. That's
why we need a separate mule-packages subhierarchy in the first place.
To fix: In the root of the packages, in Local.rules, set
BUILD_WITHOUT_MULE = t
If you want to save space, you can just delete the whole
packages/mule-packages hierarchy. You do need that Make variable,
though, see below for AUCTeX, and there may be others that need that

*sigh* That shouldn't happen, let me look ... OK. I'm hopeful that
setting BUILD_WITHOUT_MULE will fix this too.
