That's what happens here. With emacs 19.34.1 (Debian package
19.34-11), as called by the Emacspeak Makefile, emacs looks in these
five directories for the widget library files:
Unfortunately, by default the w3 distribution puts the libraries in
/usr/local/share/emacs/site-list (note "share" rather than "lib").
I got things to work by installing w3 this way:
make install datadir=/usr/local/lib
Since I have plenty of disk space at present, I've installed Red Hat
and Slackware distributions in addition to Debian. Under RedHat
Linux, Emacs 19.34 looks here:
Having already installed w3 in /usr/local/lib, I installed symbolic
links in /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp and they were found.
Under Slackware Linux, the library search path is the same as under Red Hat.
Incidently, I figured out where emacs was looking with strace, like this:
strace -o log -ff make emacspeak-widget.elc
grep widget.elc log*|less
strace is a *very* valuable tool.
