Well, as a matter of fact I'm obliged at wok to use windows but my pet OS are 
both BSDs.
In my freebsd portable I have xemacs that is "sensitive" to many environments 
(I use it for the statiscal program R and for pdflatex)  among which  C++ . 
In  fact the C++ program I edit triggers a C++ menu and many options among 
which there are also debug and compile. This latter unfortunately calls a 
"make -k" command while I'd like to run "g++ prog.c -g -o prog" as usual.
Could someone  explain what shoujld I do to modify xemacs as I want?
