Does the following change make things clear?

! double-clicking on /Applications/Emacs.app in the Finder.  To start
! Emacs as a GUI application from the terminal, the pathname to the
! executable in the bundle, i.e.,
  
    /Application/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs
  
  must be typed to the shell to enable Emacs to locate its resources
! correctly.  You may want to create a symlink or alias to this path to
! quickly access both the terminal and GUI versions.

! If you are building Emacs to run on Mac OS X and X Window System,

    ./configure --with-x

! typing `emacs' from a terminal (make sure your path contains
! /usr/local/bin) or a GUI application by double-clicking on
! /Applications/Emacs.app in the Finder.  Even in the text-only terminal

! some standard Emacs options when invoking Emacs in this way.
! 
! Emacs on Mac OS X is not configured to use X11 unless either it is
! requested or the use of Carbon is disabled explicitly.  So, if you are
! building Emacs to run on X Window System, you need to specify like:
  
    ./configure --with-x
  
+ Note that Carbon-specific functions mentioned above are not available
+ on the X11-enabled build.
  
  To use colors in a terminal, put the following lines in the file
  ~/.termcap and log in again.
