Performance Design
Darwin fulcrum.local 7.9.0 Darwin Kernel Version 7.9.0: Wed Mar 30 20:11:17 PST 2005; root:xnu/xnu-517.12.7.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC  Power Macintosh powerpc
If you start XEmacs in a terminal (as in xterm, OS X' Terminal, etc.)
the layout is garbled and unusable. Scrolling disrupts already
displayed text and it's impossible to follow the cursor or see where
in the text the cursor is.
Install editors/xemacs on Darwin/OS X and then run it in a
terminal (e.g. xterm or OS X' Terminal).
If X is running, unset DISPLAY first.

Build XEmacs with ncurses.
Here's a patch against editors/xemacs/Makefile.common:
