Hi Andreas,

The entire directory under `mac/Emacs.app/' must remain intact for
Emacs to run in GUI mode under Mac OS X.  Otherwise Emacs won't be
able to find the resources it requires to run.  That's probably what

Also, currently it can only be started from the Finder (see
mac/INSTALL).  You can copy Emacs.app to another location (which shows
up simply as the application `Emacs' in the Finder), but you must copy
the whole thing (use drag-and-drop in the Finder or `cp -r').
