Fantastic.  I got it working.

One thing I love about the emacs-23 --with-ns is that it puts all the goodies 
into  So, I called configure with:

./configure --with-mac --enable-mac-app 

In my case, the build directory was /usr/local/src/emacs-23.2.  I haven't used 
it much but it appears that things are in the right place.

And I got my "txmt" URLs to pop me into emacs.

I'll put together a more complete how to for the Rails guys.  They may not want 
to use a modified emacs but at least they will have a choice.

One question: is there any effort to get this work moved into the standard 
distribution.  I'm a little confused with all this.  Seems like emacs-22 stock 
had it but now emacs-23 doesn't in favor of the Next Step method.  I don't know 
enough about the Mac to understand it all.  It just seems like understanding 
Apple Events is a nice feature to have.

Anyhow, thank you once again.
