Ok, I got it :)

I logged as bob user and then su to root. Emacs wasn't looking for /root/.emacs but for /home/bob/.emacs
i just linked: ln -s /root/.emacs /home/bob/.emacs

That thing it does according to the manual:

I am running emacs21 on FreeBSD. If I start emacs directly from the machine, it loads and has effect the ~/.emacs file. If i log on the machine remotly via ssh (from another machine via xterm) then the emacs doesn't find the same ~/.emacs file. So everything I write in my .emacs file on the remote machine is useless. Why it can't find it ? How can I debug this ?
