Same here, except I may not miss the intl font support the Mac port
is supposed to have as an advantage.

I do need features from bzr trunk, so there's no option for me to
try the Mac port.

There may be memory leaks, but there are enough potential leaks
common to emacs regardless of ports (also seen with X on Linux).
Emacs on Linux configured as
/configure --without-selinux --without-tiff \
    --without-sound --without-dbus --without-gconf \
    --without-gsettings --without-xft --without-gsettings \
    --with-x-toolkit=no --without-gnutls
Actually I might even disable GIF, JPEG, and PNG support
as nyan-mode works in text-represenation, too, and I don't
require more than 7-bit ASCII.
