Of course it *should* work.  But I can confirm the "Symbol's value as
variable is void: hack-one-local-variable" compilation error with the
very same XEmacs version (also with Mule support).

The problem is caused by the defadvice for `hack-one-local-variable' in
tex.el.  When I comment that out it compiles successfully until it
errors because I don't have edit-utils installed and thus crm is
missing.  (Somehow, I cannot get the XEmacs package manager to install
edit-utils.  It'll always say that the tarball isn't available no matter
what download site I activate.)

Then I installed my distro's xemacs-all-packages package.  The crm error
was gone and compilation finished successfully.  And now the strange
thing is: even when I uncommend the defadvice again, then "make
distclean" and configure anew, the hack-one-local-variable error doesn't
occur anymore.  So it seems that one needs some additional package to
work properly but I don't know which.
