No, the XEmacs locations have needed the "lisp" part for a long time.
See the very bottom of this page, and notice the copyright dates:

http://www.xemacs.org/Documentation/packageGuide.html

My suspicion is that whoever wrote the wiki page did a copy&paste from
the Emacs version and overlooked the "lisp" portion of the path.  I
actually noted this once before and thought from the response I got
that it would be taken care of.  Ah, perhaps it was.  Item #7 in the
Executive Guidelines on the wiki page gets it right.

This change is appropriate for every distribution with a post 2000
release of XEmacs.  Prior to that, it used site-lisp like Emacs
anyway....

Thanks,
