I'll push this in a few days if there's no further changes to make.

I haven’t had a chance to test this, but it looks good, thanks for
working on it.

  In the top-level directory, use:
  -  ./configure --with-ns
+  make
  -(On macOS, --with-ns is enabled by default.)
+This will compile all the files.
I understand that running make also runs configure, but I think it’s
worth leaving configure and the stuff about --with-ns in there. If you
try to build the NS port on anything other than macOS then you really
need to know about --with-ns.

Thanks, I've put it back.

-This will compile all the files, but emacs will not be able to be run except
-in -nw (terminal) mode.
+In order to run Emacs, you must run:
  -In order to run Emacs.app, you must run:
+  src/emacs
+In order to install Emacs, you must run:
      make install
I read this as it’s going to install Emacs somewhere on my PC, it
should probably be something like: ‘To build Emacs.app ...’.

It may install it (with --disable-ns-self-contained). I've clarified this (hopefully).

I've also placed the nsterm.m change inside #ifdef NS_IMPL_COCOA, since the
activationPolicy doesn't seem to exist on GNUstep.

See the updated patch again.
