As I understand it, nobody has ever forbidden a gnuemacs 
on Macintosh. It's just that RMS won't personally put any effort 
into it.  Should such a port magically appear, I'm sure it would 
become freely available along with the rest of the GNU distribution.

There is a fairly good standalone editor for the Mac called Alpha,
available from sumex-aim.stanford.edu:/info-mac/app/alpha-403.hqx.

It has many emacs-like features, including emacs-like keybindings, 
but it's not exactly the same thing.
