As was already mentioned by Alberto, there are pre-built binaries.  If
you don't want to use them, I've had great success using
[MacPorts](  You will need to install the
developer tools, though.  It's available in the optional installs
section of your Snow Leopard disk or as a download on the [Apple
Developer Site]( (for which you need a
free account, which has also already been mentioned.

I would recomend going with MacPorts as you not only get Emacs (`sudo
port install emacs-app`) but a wealth of other open source tools and
apps that I couldn't go without anymore.
