I'm having trouble installing xemacs on my 1.3.3 system.  I want to
install with MULE.  This is the command I enter to install.

make USE_MULE=yes USE_XFACE=yes install

This is the error message I get before the compiling stops:

Loading ../prim/update-elc.el...
Loading /usr/pkgsrc/editors/xemacs20/work/xemacs-20.4/src/../lisp/prim/dumped-lisp.el...

*** Error code 1

Does any one have any ideas on how to correct this problem?  I'm going to
try to install again using the generic kernel and see if that makes any

Thanks for your help,
