I've done quite well by XEmacs and cygwin in the past. Usually "./configure
&& make && make install" works flawlessly (versions 21.4.4-5, IIRC).
I just installed the *whole* cygwin package (~ 1 GB), including the GNU Emacs
stuff a few days ago on a new laptop. But then, I realized GNU Emacs only
works within XWindows or the text console, so I uninstalled it. I've had a
bit of trouble compiling 21.4.10, and now 21.4.11, the latest error I've
/src/xemacs-21.4.11/src/emacs.c:500: undefined reference to `_IsBadReadPtr'
I've also downloaded the default cygwin binaries, and dumped them into a
directory, but when I run XEmacs, I get this error message on the console:
Couldn't find an obvious default for the root of the XEamcs hierarchy
I would prefer to build it myself, but if anyone can solve either problem I'd
appreciate it very much.
