Description of problem:
You should either include etags with xemacs or make etags a package of its own.
The way that it is now, even if you only use xemacs if you need etags, you have
to install emacs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.don't install emacs
3.try to run etags
Actual Results: command not found
Expected Results: etags runs.

Thanks for reminding me about this. :)
BTW ctags is actually a separate upstream package.
What I'm thinking now, is for the time being at least is to ship etags with
XEmacs named as etags.xemacs, and symlink it to etags at install time if
there is no etags installed. Perhaps I will do the same with Emacs later.
Then alternatives could also be used to choose one or the other when both
(moving to xemacs component)
xemacs-21.4.10-5 should have etags.emacs.
I'd say yes. Please either include etags with xemacs or make an additional
package which has etags from emacs in it and allow it to be installed seperately.
I mean it includes "/usr/bin/etags.xemacs".
