I haven’t had a chance to test this, but it looks good, thanks for
working on it.

I understand that running make also runs configure, but I think it’s

try to build the NS port on anything other than macOS then you really
need to know about --with-ns.

I read this as it’s going to install Emacs somewhere on my PC, it
should probably be something like: ‘To build Emacs.app ...’.
