Previous version of Emacs depend on ctags and not from

This has another consequence (at least with -1 and -2): uninstalling
Emacs22 corrupts the installed ctag package (as reported from cygcheck).

I felt the same way about not wanting to install xemacs just to run emacs, so I installed emacs 22.1 without installing xemacs-emacs-common. It seemed to work until I tried compiling a tex file under auctex, which caused emacs to crash with a core dump. I then uninstalled ctags (which was left over from my previous version of emacs), and now auctex seems to work fine. Maybe some other problem will show up later as a result of not having ctags. I don't know what ctags is, but if it's needed for emacs, I would hope that it would be possible to install it without also installing xemacs.
