pkgsrc/editors/xemacs fetches two extra distfiles, which are not

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel    931709 Sep 11 19:54 xemacs-21.4.17-elc.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel   1634004 Sep 11 19:56 xemacs-21.4.17-info.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  10626826 Sep 11 19:53 xemacs-21.4.17.tar.gz

The contents of the -elc and -info archives is already contained in the xemacs-21.4.17.tar.gz
and hence they do not need to be fetched separately.

In addition, there's a tar.bz2 file available aswell, which is smaller
than the tar.gz file. It might be worthwile to fetch that one instead
(for people with modem connections or so).
