very good conclusion on Emacs For Mac OS, but some Packages on Mac OS Snow Leopard hang by trying to compile. I have had several Problems with Org-Mode in one Modul - the Rest of Org-Mode compiles fine. I testet it with Homebrew, Ports and Aquamacs, ( GNU Emacs 24.5.1) and Org-Mode 8.2.10. Maybe it would a idea to include a Test of Package-Installation in this Site and give a short Feedback, which package does compile without problems. I would try now older package-versions for Org-Mode.

Regarding Homebrew, I prefer this variant:
brew install railwaycat/emacsmacport/emacs-mac --with-gnutls --with-imagemagick --with-official-icon --with-xml2
Here is why:

The wiki claims “After installation, using the emacs command in the terminal or shell will run the -nw version of Emacs.” but this is appears to be untrue: after installing with ‘brew cask install emacs’ using the emacs command opens the windowed application. Inspection of the Ruby script symlinked by the Homebrew installation, /usr/local/bin/emacs → /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs, gives no indication that the emacs command from teh terminal or shell will run emacs with the -nw.
This statement in the wiki needs to be either corrected to reflect the actual behaviour or, if this is a bug which needs to be fixed, instructions for resolving the buggy behaviour needs to be provided.

Please correct the wiki to reflect the actual behaviour…
