gui emacs from terminal

Dear Users,

First off I am a newbie. I installed emacs (in the user folder of my mac os10.5.8) and am able to run it from my terminal but I have no gui interface. This is the command I used to build

$ ./configure --with-jpeg=no --with-png=no --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no

I did this because I was told to by the error messages when I initially attempted to install with just ./configure.

So I have two questions is this why I don't get a gui interface?

More importantly can I open with a gui interface with this installation?

I have downloaded and installed a second version of emacs, the carbon version which does open with the gui, I have this file in my applications folder. Is there any way I can invoke this version of emacs while in the terminal and having ssh'd to a remote host?

Please ask for clarification if this is unclear and thanks in advance for any help,
