Problem Installing xemacs on Centos 5.4


I am not sure if this is the correct forum but here is the question.

I am attempting to install Xemacs-21.4.22 on Centos 5.4 and get the following error message when I attempt to...

make install
..........
xlwmenu.c:39:28: error: X11/bitmaps/gray: No such file or directory
xlwmenu.c: In function 'XlwMenuInitialize':
xlwmenu.c:3015: error: 'gray_bits' undeclared (first use in this function)
xlwmenu.c:3015: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
xlwmenu.c:3015: error: for each function it appears in.)
xlwmenu.c:3016: error: 'gray_width' undeclared (first use in this function)
xlwmenu.c:3016: error: 'gray_height' undeclared (first use in this function)
make[1]: *** [xlwmenu.o] Error 1

------------------------------------------

I understand that there are some X11 bitmaps not included in Centos 5.4 however I have no idea how to install them.

Appreciate your help
Brian

Not a direct answer to your question but xemacs is available from at least one of the Centos, EPEL, rpmfusion or equivalent main repos?..

# yum install emacs
.. provides version 21.4-20.el5, including a GUI for X.



The packages required for your compilation :

# yum install \
Xaw3d-devel libXp-devel xorg-x11-xbitmaps libXaw-devel

And xemacs-21.4.22 will create the executable xemacs
in a few minutes.

I guess I spoke to soon. xemacs does execute however when I attempt to open a file no file browser window appears.

"symbol's function definition is void: make-annotation"

If I use C-x C-f I get...

"Symbol's vale as variable is void: file-p"

Any ideas

Thanks
Brian

Which xemacs ? ? Please define package.
