I got that it requires non-vanilla GNU Emacs, and this is my first
concern, that's why I asked if it's possible to port the needed
changes to GNU Emacs.  Then, preview-latex would just take advantage
of GNU Emacs features, whatever it is.  My problem was that I don't
know in what Macport Emacs is different from GNU Emacs, and what was
PDFKit.  In addition I don't really know what the original problem is,
not having experience of it.  For all of these reasons I asked for

I did have a look at the code, but didn't grasp the details because of
the above-mentioned reasons.
