EMACS_UNIBYTE and installing auctex




Raman,

although few of us are running the software dectalk, it probably would
still be a good idea to replace the existing tcldtk.c module with the
one I make available on my website. The one in emacspeak has been
broken for a few years now (since version 5.0 of the software
dectalk). either you can grab it from 

http://www-personal.une.edu.au/~tcross/software-dtk-hack-2.0.tar.gz

 or I can try posting it to the list.
