Installing Emacs on Mac OS X

I'm running Mac OS 10.3.6 on a G4 Cube, trying to install Emacs. When
I attempt to run the configure script, I get the following four lines:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... powerpc-apple-darwin7.6.0
configure: error: Emacs hasn't been ported to
`powerpc-apple-darwin7.6.0' systems.
Check `etc/MACHINES' for recognized configuration names.

I searched 'etc/MACHINES' for 'darwin', 'apple', 'macintosh' and
various related terms to no avail. I only saw the note on Yellow Dog.
The web page (http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html#Platforms)
states that Emacs should work under OS X, but I can't find any
indication of it in documentation.

I also found the '/mac' directory, but it seemed to have to do with
making Emacs run under Mac OS 9 and earlier. I hope this is the right
place to send this and I'm not just being inept.
