A PR is always a good thing as i tend to forget such kind of things from
time to time. The problem is, that i use xpgwedge which installs everything
into /usr/pkg/. It seems that the different xemacs packages are out of sync
regarding the installation dir. I'll take a look into this.
The second thing, xemacs-packages is absolutely needed for the internal
package system to work. This should be handled in pkgsrc, too, which is also
on my todo list.
