If you are seeing crashes, I don't think picking parts from the mac port will 
help much.  Not that I know if there are parts that can be easily "taken".
How about running Emacs in gdb and submitting a bug report with a backtrace 
when the crash happens?

FWIW, the Fontbook app in OSX can't display ' for sgi-screen either.  So 
something is wrong in the font.  I guess MacVim.app substitues the bad 
character for a character from another font.
