Emacs 24.5

I finally got around to compiling and installing Emacs 24.5. I forgot about the extra bit you have to do to enable eww on OS X, so I had to rebuild it.

I've blogged about how to build Emacs with eww on OS X before but in case you're trying to do so for Emacs 24.5, here's the magic spell1:

./configure --with-ns CFLAGS="-I /usr/local/include/libxml2"
make
make install

Most people, of course, will choose to just install a binary or to use Homebrew but if, like me, you want to build from scratch, the above should do it for you.

Footnotes:

You may or may not need

./autogen.sh

before the configure. I don't and I've never been able to figure out why it's sometimes needed and sometimes not. If you have problems, just call autogen.sh first.
