yes. if you read the xemacs homepage they probably dont support osx. So 
you should install all X Windows and Linux apps for ISX via Fink. The 
Fink project makes Linux and Xwindoes software avaialble to compile and 
run on OSX. Fink is built on top of the debian apt-get tool set, except 
that after it downloads software it pathches the sources to compile and 
run on OSX. Fink also has binary releases of its 'stable' software 
pacakges, these you can download and then run.  There is also a GUI to 
Fink. I dont use it myself, but Google 'fink commander' for more info. 
Perhaps at some point in the future projects like Xemacs and Guile will 
provide that their own software runs on OSX, but  until then use Fink.
