No, I downloaded it as a binary from

http://www.porkrind.org/emacs/offsite-mirror1/Emacs-21.1.tar.gz

However, at this point in time, I have to ***stress*** that I do *not*
recommend this build *at all*. For me, it exhibits behaviour that I am
convinced no Emacs user would ever tolerate. YMMV, but you have been
warned ;-)

No, I don't. However, if you are using Jaguar, then you may want to
check out this one

http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~franconi/mac-emacs/

It is recommended by a lot of folks and they say that it doesn't
exhibit the problems I experienced with 21.1.30.

hope this helps
