Well, without /opt/csw/X11 the Emacs that I can provide is very poor
from the stand point of user interface: limited X11/Athena Widget based,
curses based and, no GTK based one; this is a regression from the
previous package.

Next week I'll try some variations in order to obtain something
acceptable but I cannot guarantee.

If installing these packages introduces a risk for other packaging
activities, can we set up a special, separated, system where I can build
a fully functional Emacs?

Note that I'm not available until the beginning of the next week and I'm
incommunicado[1] until then.
