Thanks for rolling this for we lesser mortals Stephen, it installed like
a dream and does look good and was easy to reconfigure to point to my
location for R.

I've installed it as I have been using XEmacs and hitting an error
message similar or identical to the one Ben reports (don't know why).

Emacs/ESS looks good but there's one ESS toolbar button that appears in
XEmacs that I really miss, the "submit a line" one.  ctrl-C, alt-J is a
clumsy and slow sequence compared with clicking on that button to work
through some code.

I may be missing something obvious but is it possible to get those
toolbar buttons in Emacs too?
