delete selection in xemacs gentoo

Took too long to find this. for some reason pending-del *doesn't*
install when emerging xemacs. BUT, you can emerge it after, "emerge

`turn-on-pending-delete' is an interactive autoloaded Lisp function
-- autoloads from "pending-del"

Turn on pending delete minor mode unconditionally.

so I suggest reading the pending-del package. M-x locate-library RET

I'm trying to turn on Auto-delete-selection in xemacs 21.4 I

have done this before in xemacs 21.1 but it is different in

John> 21.4. In the Options menu under Keyboard+Mouse it says
John> "Delete Key Deletes Selection" which sounds like what I want

but the option is grayed out and won't let me select it. I

(locate-library "pending-del")
"c:\\Program Files\\XEmacs\\xemacs-packages\\lisp\\pc\\pending-del.elc"

Ergo, you see to be missing the "pc" XEmacs package.

Install it and live happily ever after.
