With your pointers, I was able to download, patch, and build the AppKit
verison of Emacs.  I had a slight bit of trouble because I forgot to supply
the --enable-mac-app flag to configure the first time around, but that was
easily fixed, and otherwise the process was very smooth.

And I'm very happy to see that the resulting executable displays Devanagari
text correctly.

Thanks very much for your help, Peter!
