Here is a small recipe for using the latest Org-mode development version with Aquamacs which works fine for me.

(1) Do a 

git clone git://repo.or.cz/org-mode.git

in some directory of your choide, e.g. your home directory. 

(2) cd to the new "org-mode" directory. Assuming you have installed Aquamacs in /Applications (default), change line 14 to:


(3) make lisp/org-install.el
(4) make compile

(5) (optional and requires MacTeX or similar) 
make doc/org.pdf

(6) Insert these lines in your .emacs file:

(setq load-path (cons "~/org-mode/lisp" load-path))
(require 'org-install)

this assumes that (1) created an org-mode directory in your home directory.

(7) Restart Aquamacs (you can later find out about more subtle methods than restarting Emacs which does not take long these days)
