To be explicit, this should just be regular, vanilla GNU Emacs built
using the MacPorts build system to satisfy build dependencies and
perhaps provide a few patches, etc. If built with -ns recent Emacs
versions build a cocoa app.
 At least that is my understanding, don't use Macports myself [I
build my Emacs using pkgsrc(wip/emacs-current)]
