This, apparently, was the problem. org-mode comes with a Makefile  
which has a line


and I have set up a link

/usr/bin/emacs -> /Applications/Aquamacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Aquamacs

Calling emacs that way results in:

Error: charsets directory (/Users/dr/Nightly/Cocoa23ub/aquamacs- 
etc/charsets) does not exist.

If I configure org-mode's Makefile as


org-mode is build correctly.
