GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (installed from Debian testing) has the customization
variable `indent-tabs-mode' (M x customize-variable indent-tabs-mode)
that should be simple enough:
Indent Tabs Mode: Hide Toggle off (nil)
State: this option has been set and saved.
Indentation can insert tabs if this is non-nil. Hide
Setting this variable automatically makes it local to the current buffer.
Parent groups: Fill
The same applies to XEmacs. It should be possible to make the setting
mode specific using hooks (e.g. sml-mode-hook). However, major modes,
such as the Makefile mode, that require tabs in certain places, should
treat tabs correctly regardless of the indent-tabs-mode setting.
