Emacs and JDE

Not sure if this is the best topic area but I couldn't find a closer related one.  I just downloaded xemacs 21.1 patch 9 for windows xp.  I am trying to get the jde-2.2.8 with supporting libraries eieio-0.17beta2, elib-1.0, semantic-1.4beta9, and speedbar-0.14beta1.  When I start emacs I get the following error Can't open load file: eldoc.  I can't find any info on eldoc anywhere.  What is it and how do I load it.  

I have attached a copy of my error backtrace and .emacs file

backtrace

Signaling: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "eldoc")
  signal(file-error ("Cannot open load file" "eldoc"))
  load("eldoc" nil t nil)

)
  (eval-when-compile (require (quote eldoc)) (require (quote semantic-ctxt)))
)
  load-internal("senator" nil t nil undecided)
  load("senator" nil t nil)
  require(senator)

Here's one version:

May not be provided in the standard dist; my 20.7.1 on linux doesn't have it either.
