 Building emacs22 on Mac OS X

I always run emacs in a terminal. But if you like yours GUI then take a look at this.

"You have two choices: building a double-clickable .app, or building the usual command-line-launched binary, presumably with X11 support. These choices are mutually incompatible: you can't create both with one build. Moreover, I've found that installing the Carbon app will deploy pieces that break the X11 support, so if you're going to do both, do the Carbon app first, then the X11 binary."
