Hi

I could install finks emacs 26 so the library dependence should be
settled, however compiling emacs master gives me 

Using 
 ./configure --prefix=/opt/emacs28 --with-x-toolkit=athena --without-pop --with-mailutils


/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/make -C ../admin/grammars all EMACS="../../src/emacs"

You have objections to the ns gui? If you build it like this you'll
need an X server running. Plus the ns gui lets you remap
Command/Control/Option to Hyper/Super/Ctrl in various combinations.

rm emacs.pdmp and try again? (I have a vague suspicion this is a gmake
vs make thing, so perhaps ensure youʼre using GNU make)

Well I have the XQuartz installed by fink, but as it seems that will
need some fiddling with respect to the Hyper/Super/Crtl

Where can I find the ns gui?

And which options should I use then?

I seem to remember that you are a (long term) Mac user, what is your
opinion about the one provided by emacsformacox?

Or make clean/distclean even. Thanks

Have a look in nextstep/INSTALL in the git repo.

Basically, you don't need any flags. That's how I build:

./configure
make
make install
<copy Emacs.app to /Applications>

Iʼm the wrong person to ask: Iʼve only ever compiled emacs direct from
git on macOS.

Note: I lost regular access to macOS about a year and a half ago.

The emacsformacosx option is solid for end-users, but I think still less
good for developers (caveat: not so for developers interested in helping
make a stable "emacsformacosx" package for macos users, versus people
interested in latest-and-greatest emacs HEAD development). It replaces fat
binaries with a ruby-based launcher that figures out which binary to run.
This might bother or you not (it bothered me, once upon a time). Beyond
that it seemed to be a faithful version of GNU Emacs built for macos, and
offers nightly builds for closing some of the gap I mentioned above.

An alternative is the "mac port", which replaces the ns specific code in
the GNU Emacs mainline with code that uses a different mac-specific
toolkit. This has the advantage that the toolkit code it uses is more
current and better maintained (the toolkit code used by the ns port is
potentially at/beyond its theoretical end of support), and the downside
that it doesn't support the non-macOS nextstep codebase. In practice, the
mac port is pretty popular, because it removes some rough edges that the ns
port basically can't avoid. You can find more information about the mac
port at https://bitbucket.org/mituharu/emacs-mac/src/master/ and/or you can
use the popular homebrew packaging by user railwaycat.

Although my personal experience is a bit dated at this point, about a
decade of experience lead me to the conclusion that either the ns or mac
ports were better under macos UNLESS you also want to be able to open
frames on remote X displays. I mostly used the ns port built directly from
the GNU Emacs HEAD. I would be surprised if that had changed in the
meantime.

Hope that helps!
~Chad

I think I will stick to my Linux machine for the forseeable future, but
also want a stable and modern enough emacs to run the packages I use
most, namely auctex, gnus and org mode.
I would need, to get the hyper-super modifier business resolved. The
emacsformacox seems to take care of that, the fink compiled one on the
other hand does not (without digging into Xmodmap).

Ok, I will give this a try, I don't think I will need the remote X
display stuff for the moment, but thanks for pointing that out to me.

I think you've got this a little backwards.

The Mac port used to use Carbon, which is beyond it's end-of-life, or
is at least not seeing new feature development. The Mac port also uses
a lot of "NEXTstep" (Cocoa) code, which is still the current toolkit
for macOS and iOS, although it has another name on iOS and I can't
remember what it is.

The NS port is almost entirely "NEXTstep" (GNUstep and Cocoa,
specifically).

Apologies for misleading with my bad and/or out of date memory; Alan is
certainly better informed than I am here.

Since it had been a while, I dug in a bit and found this relevant
information in the mac port:
https://bitbucket.org/mituharu/emacs-mac/src/master/README-mac
This might be useful to anyone looking at the alternatives.

Thanks,
~Chad

When I do this emacs  complains that I should use

Do you mean make install+copy Emacs.app from the installation path to /Applications?

You only need to do that if you need the mailutils. I don't, so I
don't build them.
