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


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.
