hey this is my first time ever using a newsgroup so
dont flame the n00b, just lightly roast :)

first, i updated my G5 running 10.3 to the lastest and
greatest via software update.
secondly, i updated dev tools with most recent patch.
i then downloaded the lastest stable (i think) version
of emacs - version 21.3 (filename,
from savahanna's
i unpacked it into the hardrive and then ran
configure. it threw this error message: "checking host
system type... powerpc-apple-darwin7.2.0 
configure: error: Emacs hasn't been ported to
`powerpc-apple-darwin7.2.0' systems. 
Check `etc/MACHINES' for recognized configuration
i then opened up the machines file, which told me to
properly configure for Apple PowerPC to edit
"src/m/macppc.h" and remove an /if 0 and /endif from
the last block of code. I did that, and after saving
the file, i reran congifure. I got the same error
message. I have verifyied that i have done exactly
what I have laid out here, and nothing else

Any suggestions? I need to get this built and running
as soon as I can :)
