pkgsrc updated and tiny patch fed back upstream.

Just tested a quick build on amd64 and saw the same issue. I then
built and installed xemacs-packages and the problem went away.

A minor downside is that xemacs-packages is about five times the size
of the base xemacs.

So we need a much clearer MESSAGE in xemacs, and possibly the minimal
set of additional files to enable File>Open etc should be made part of
the base xemacs package.

Does building xemacs-packages fix it for you?
