That appears to be what happens when you install it with make.  Having 
gone through the exercise, I don't think it would be that difficult to 
copy the relevant files around.  If there was an issue mingling with 
XEmacs packages, then I am guessing the site-package directory could be 
used and hopefully require works with that.
