Yes, another org question. Sorry.

All the posts I've read about org-mode lately have me intrigued, and I'm wanting to check it out. Problem: my version of org is old (4.67c), and I want to upgrade to current. And I'm on a Mac (Snow Leopard)

Googled the hell out of this, but I've found precious few resources for running a non-GUI implementation of emacs on OS X.

I followed the instructions here, created a .emacs file in ~/.emacs.d, with the instructions listed on that page. I have the folder for org unpacked to ~/.emacs.d/org-7.01g.

I've included the first line from the link above, not adding the contrib directory, as it sounded optional. When I go to the xemacs subfolder in my new org folder and run make install-noutline, I get this:

make: *** No rule to make target `install-noutline'. Stop.

Obviously it's not finding info it needs. Am I running this from the wrong location? What's needed here?

In case you need it, here's what my .emacs file looks like:

(setq load-path (cons "~/.emacs.d/org-7.01g/lisp" load-path))

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org\\'" . org-mode))
(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(global-set-key "\C-cb" 'org-iswitchb)

(global-font-lock-mode 1) ; for all buffers
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock) ; Org buffers only

(transient-mark-mode 1)

(setq default-major-mode 'text-mode)
(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'turn-on-auto-fill)

Ha! I beat the hive mind. And wasted a question. There was a typo in my Makefile. Fixed!
