[PATCH] emacs: replace setq + let with let*

Subject:[PATCH] emacs: replace setq + let with let*

From: David Bremner <bremner@debian.org>

I found several places where a setq is immediately followed by a let
or a let*. This seems to be the pessimal combination, with the
implicit scope of the setq combined with the extra indentation of the let.
I combined these cases into a single let* which I think is easier to read.
In two places I turned a single clause let into a let*.
