Got emacs working on tiger

What seemed to make the difference was adding “–without-x” to the configure:

./configure --with-carbon-app --without-x
make bootstrap
sudo make install

(I arrived at this by noticing in the compile error message:

macterm.h:590: error: conflicting types for 'display_x_get_resource'

and on a hunch figured, well, I don’t need X so lets try without it. I haven’t looked in to what I lose by disabling it. *shrug* )

Oddly, the make install didn’t. Or rather, it installed the non-carbon version in /usr/local, but did not install the carbon app in /Applications. Hopefully I will find out why, because I’m sure it did the last time I built emacs on Panther (a week or two ago).

Anyway, I have aqua/carbon emacs working on tiger, and I’m a happy little camper.

Oh, by the way, for those who came in late… the current CVS emacs has native aqua/carbon support, which is how I’m building this. To get it, do this:

cvs -z3 co emacs

then the aforementioned configure/make. One of these days I’ll get around to uploading packages.
