[cfarm-users] Installing emacs on GCC119/AIX

The issue at this point is that other cfarm and mailing list users are
getting called "dumb" and "stupid". And with very little reasoning
other than loosely "we take what we can get" and again loosely "call
others dumb". I am not personally affected by this as I am confident
in my abilities. However, the treatment would be intolerable toward
someone who actually was having difficulty understanding the problem
or topic.

I saw no mention of interest in getting gcc to work properly on
FreeBSD again. And we have only one small decrepit netbsd box. But the
thread has become too abusive and nonsensical to address this problem
correctly. Out of respect to other users I will omit the examples of
bar raising tactics and obfuscation of details which were used here

When I have time off of work I will start a new thread detailing this
issues of "no BSDs", "no arm boards" and "idle AIX machines".
