But the target xemacs-package does not help me, since it uses

        rm -rf xemacs-build
        cp -a auctex-$(TAG) xemacs-build
        cd xemacs-build \
        && ./configure ... --without-texmf-dir    

Etc. I *cannot* use configure for a official xemacs-pkg. I have to copy
the relevant targets in the Makefile manually.

I know this part of the INSTALL file. BTW  how is the variable
TEXIMPUTS set at runtime?

But it uses configure!
