Correct.  That option is only for the carbon build.  The X11 build
isn't mac-specific in this way.  It will use whatever X11 has mapped
to the logical 'meta' key,

I agree completely, and I have my environment configured to support
this.  You'll have it too, once you get the xmodmap thing working.  

I don't think can help with the info problem; sorry.  It's always
'just worked' for me.  But there are many info experts here :) Otoh
they probably stopped reading this thread long ago, or never started
in the first place.  You might want to ask that specific question
again, in a separate thread with a different Subject: header.
