 Great that's resolved! You really had me worried I'd have to find a 
 harddrive and set up my PowerBook G4 under NetBSD.  ;)

 Well, plain xemacs comes with basic functionality - the separation 
 between lisp packages shipped with xemacs and those shipped with 
 xemacs-packages is somewhat arbitrary. Plus, it comes with its own 
 package manager, so instead of installing the 100+ MB package blob, you 
 might just choose a limited hand-picked selection.

 Gnome only gets as far as the window decorations. XEmacs uses X11 Lucid 
 / Athena widgets. Your screenshot's pretend-3D effect looks exactly 
 like what I see here (XQuartz ATM).
