The following recipe works very well for me:
This is what needs to be done once:
(1) do an initial
git clone git://repo.or.cz/org-mode.git
of the latest version.
(2) Change into that directory and edit the Makefile (assuming
Aquamacs has been installed in /Applications):
# Name of your emacs binary
EMACS="/Applications/Aquamacs Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Aquamacs Emacs"
(3) Adapt your .emacs-file (the git part is in "~/devel/org-mode" in
(defvar org-sys-directory "~/devel/org-mode/lisp"
"The directory containing the org distribution.")
(setq load-path (cons org-sys-directory load-path))
Now everytime you want to get the latest org-version do a
(4) make update
in your org-directory. In Aquamacs do a
(5) M-x org-reload
to make sure everything works as expected.
