M-x line-number-mode works in yesterday's nightly build of Aquamacs  
Emacs 1.5RC1.  This should display in the modeline something like  
"Lnnn"  where "nnn" is some integer telling you the ordinal of the  
line on which the cursor is positioned.
I'm attaching a screenshot with an "L326".

Cheers, José
