Great, I am hoping that someone will maintain a dmg and also make  
carbon (also aqua?) emacs part of fink! Why should we manually build  
this package when there is in fact a nice system for .finkinfo files???

It also seems to be a very good idea since many things are shared  
between the various emacs-??? packages in fink, and emacs-carbon and  
emacs-aqua are yet another variation. There are already packages in  
fink that do not belong to the /sw-directory, e.g. Xdarwin, and there  
are also already carbon-specific packages in fink.

Why not extend the fink distribution to also cover Applications/ or  
--- even better!!! -- why not att a Applications directory inside  
fink e.g.


It is easy to create symbolic links if someone insists to have these  
in /Applications instead...

The above solution seems to solve ALL problems with the fink people's  
annoyance with non-/sw packages...  I think they have to accept that  
Mac OS X is in fact slightly different from e.g. Debian when it comes  
to its application format etc. (No flame intended.)
