Nothing gets deleted. If a new (minor of major) version of GNU Emacs is 
installed, then some new directories are created to contain version-specific 
files (ELisp, binaries). Existing INFO and MAN files are usually substituted.

If you want to learn about the actual specifics you can install different 
versions of GNU Emacs into /tmp or such and check the compile log from 'make 
install'. Or get yourself some GNU Emacs packages (Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, 
BSD) and compare their contents.

I'm a bit lazy today…



Claiming that the Macintosh is inferior to Windows because most people use 
Windows, is like saying that all other restaurants serve food that is inferior 
to McDonald's.
