You mean the default command line version of emacs, right?  I have never 
seen anyone use that for very long.  There are much better Aqua (Cocoa 
and Carbon) versions of emacs out there.  I like the following 2 ports

Emacs.app (Cocoa) at 
which includes very little

Aquamacs (Carbon) at
which includes ESS, AucTeX and much more
