I removed nothing from your post, for this reply,
because it's so informative.

It's now 6:15pm EST that I first see your post,
and going through the thread, just asked some
things that you answered here.

For doc for everyone, and maybe that should be included
in the emacs build-doc, if you have a second way to
answer those, just for different angle on same subject
by even same person, maybe answer those repeated

SURELY, the info in this thread should not just
disappear into deja-seen-long-ago, but should
be stuffed into the emacs building-doc!


To summarize one of your points, you say to set
the LDFLAGS *now*, eg in .cshrc, so it's always

And to IGNORE the idea of a RUN path.  (Since one
person evidently believes in it, maybe a few
educational words on why not -- the more you
explain, in some depth, the more that other
people will learn, and have an easier time with
building eg emacs.)


I now have lots of things to read-over *in-detail*,
before I go have a try at emacs again.


Oh, is there some EASY way, cookbook like, to grab
an emacs from CVS, without having to *learn* the
whole freaking thing?
