Notes on building Emacs

The commands you need to fetch the GNUemacs source and build it are:

cvs -z3 co emacs
cd emacs

Building your own elisp into the image

To get your own elisp included into a dumped emacs, you need to:

  1. Load it from loadup.el
  2. Byte-compile it
  3. Include it in `shortlisp' in src/
  4. Recompile emacs
