--with-ns should be the default.

Note however that he's built from an old source that is likely to be of Dec 27 2009.

To get a current snapshot, the 23.2 prereleases should be used, or git or bzr from the new repository.

Well it wouldn't work at all with  a GUI without that.

I've had trouble with docview as well a while ago and decided to simply switch it off in Aquamacs for that reason.

If you got it to work, we should perhaps look at your build configuration (maybe you have some libraries that it links against).
