[OS X Emacs] Incremental search in Aquamacs 1.4

Richard et al,

the current development builds have had the `set-region-to-isearch- 
match' customization variable for a while.

I have now also modified the bindings such that C-s and C-r will, in  
the default setting, not cause the region to be set.  Command-f/g/G  
will set the region as is customary on the Mac.   Please try out the  
nightly builds on http://aquamacs.org/nightlies.shtml  to see if this  
matches your expectations; the Intel build already contains the  
changes, the PPC build will be up to date by tomorrow.

- David
