In order to use TeXShop with Makefile, I changed both path settings

Script (in both textboxes). In Typesetting in preferences I changed 
Default Script to the Personal Script selection, and  Command-Line 
Below: to Make.engine.

containing the lines:

   make pdf

Finally, I have requesed the maintainer of fink to include carbon-emacs 
build as well, and he promised to do that I think, but nothing yet. So 
where can I get the best and most recent build of carbon emacs to use 
with TeXShop in the meantime?
