    thanx but there is a small mistake here;

    $ cd /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_editors_emacs/work/emacs-22.3

    then;

    $ sudo patch -p0 < ~/Downloads/emacs-snow-leopard.patch

    then;

    $ sudo port install emacs

Did I get this wrong? Let me know!
