FWIW, I'm in favor of dropping _none_ of the ports.  NS is in a bad
state, but is still much better than when it was first included: then,
multiple Emacs users reported it in a completely unusable state, not
even capable of running subprocesses without lock-ups, yet it still
replaced Carbon Emacs.

I feel obliged to mention, again, that when the NS port was installed,
there was no commitment from anyone to keep it maintained.  And it was
actually broken.
