Dear Richard and Rodney,
I don't understand this either, since this problem went away (at least for
me) with version 21.4.19 of XEmacs.
BTW, in the most recent version of my instructions, I recommend unzipping
ESS into c:\Program Files\XEmacs\site-packages\. That might explain why
XEmacs couldn't find ess-site without the explicit path.
