Whoops, sorry John. In the last few months, we took off the XEmacs packaged ESS since it wasn't keeping up very well with the tarball, due to complications, mis-matched release schedules/requirements, and the like.

It now needs to be installed from tarball, though there is some help for that, I believe. (someone remind me what it is!).
