Related documentation

Using Emacs as a Development Environment from the official FreeBSD project documentation. Some of the config tweaks are a bit dated and might need updating. But overall it's a good starting point.


NetBSD

OpenBSD

After setting PKG_PATH to something appropriate (generally protocol://mirrorsite/pub/OpenBSD/`uname -r`/packages/`uname -m`/), execute as root or with sudo

# pkg_add -i emacs

Using the -i (interactive) option tells pkg_add to prompt you for which version to install. Emacs 21, 22, and 23 are available in packages. To install from the ports tree, read ports(7) and look in editors/emacs21, editors/emacs22, or editors/emacs23.

No premade port or package for Emacs 24 seems to be publicly available currently.

PC-BSD
