Probably not the answer you want, but as a long-time mac and emacs
user, my suggestion would be to use the vanilla os x version of emacs.

The "nextstep" build of emacs runs as a native app,

You are suggesting to a Mac user to build his own Emacs?
Do you know what that takes?
About 10 minutes :-)

I just realized that it is even possible to download it prebuilt.

I recommend a homebrew-based install of emacs.

I like the version available from railwaycat/emacsmacport tap
(https://github.com/railwaycat/emacs-mac-port [1]).

Not familiar w/ emacsports, will take a look at it this weekend. My
problem w/ the homebrew install (and i'm a homebrew fan) is that
i prefer the "all-in-one" (--with-ns) package and not having the app
spread around /usr/local in unix fashion the way the homebrew install

Personally, i used homebrew to install the build dependencies
(autoconf, automake, imagemagick, etc) and the git mirror of the emacs
trunk (http://git.sv.gnu.org/emacs.git) YMMV.
