Installing Emacs via MacPorts?
See InstallingOpenmclViaMacPorts to get the general idea for how to leverage the available packages from Darwin Ports.
MacPorts provides several variations on Emacs/XEmacs:
- XEmacs -- Found in the editors section.
- GNU Emacs -- Found in the editors section.
- emacs-devel -- The emacs package, using the experimental Cocoa interface. Found in the editors section.
- emacs-app -- The emacs package, using a full-featured aqua integration. Found in the aqua section.
At one point, the XEmacs port wouldn't work until you had installed a number of other packages; the least obvious of which was openmotif which fufilled it's desire for libXm.
Note that you can also use the excellent AquaEmacs (Cocoa-based Emacs) software.
Also note that you can get Slime this way.
