That's not true. Emacs can be built without X11 support if necessary: $ ldd `which emacs` /usr/local/bin/emacs: libutil.so.4 => /lib/libutil.so.4 (0x28168000) libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x28174000) libm.so.2 => /lib/libm.so.2 (0x281b3000) libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x281cd000) $ This version of Emacs has been built from the ports. I've used WITHOUT_X11 on the command line to force Emacs to build without any X11 support.
