The FAQ above states that the virus is in NTEmacs.  I downloaded the
Emacs source tarball which can be built on any platform (or that was
my intent!) directly from the GNU web site.  The FAQ above also
states: "To remove these warnings, update your virus scanner to the
latest version".  I do have the latest version.  I got the virus
warning because I was Windoze machine as a conduit between the web and
our Solaris machine.  Has anyone else seen this problem in the non NT
version of the tar ball?
