Thanks - sorted it out finally. After I removed the el-get in the
~/Library/Application\ Support/Aquamacs\ Emacs/ Aquamacs is happy
again. Note : I'm not using el-get currently (it is not required nor
referenced that I'm aware of). For your reference once again, this
problem occurred after the OS X upgrade 10.5 => 10.6.
