Dan made temacs runnable as you'd run any program.  So I imagine
one needs to do this (100% untested):

  ./temacs -l loadup
  M-x load-file RET ~/.emacs RET

(It is possible that the second line is not needed, but I guess anyone
should be able to see immediately if her customizations are or aren't
in effect.)

And thereafter use Emacs as usual.

Modifications of the above recipe to run under valgrind are left to
the interested parties ;-)
