Which should work with XEmacs -- the XEmacs installation (at least for
cygwin, I don't have non-cygwin installed, unfortunately) has gnuserv
installed by default (at least you can have it installed with all the
rest of the packages).

Once installed, that incantation should work.

    ripley> So you want gnuclientw and not gnuclient as your pager.

Actually, under XEmacs (and with the caveat, it is the Cygwin version)
you actually do want gnuclient.
