Hi Marcelo,

I've been building emacs from source on my Mac for years; when running
configure pass the "--with-ns" option and then after running "make
install" you will find an Emacs.app Mac application in your nextstep

I think this to be the best approach as (like you) I was coming to Mac
from linux and wanted an Emacs that was as similar as possible to *true*
linux Emacs.

also you might find the following helpful.
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; on mac apple is meta
(setq mac-command-modifier 'meta)
(setq mac-option-modifier 'super)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Best -- Eric
