Recipe for Building Emacs on the Mac

You can build Emacs on Mac OS X quite easily. Here is how to it on Tiger:

Get the source:

export CVS_RSH="ssh"
cvs -z3 co emacs

cd into the emacs dir and invoke:

./configure --enable-carbon-app=/Applications --without-x

This will put Emacs into your Applications folder and look just any other Mac app.

Then build it:

make bootstrap

Now install:

sudo make install

Now just click on the icon in Applications.
