Thanks for your message and sorry for my late response.  I did some
research and found the script above and also others like:

  • https://github.com/d12frosted/homebrew-emacs-plus

and a lot of blog entries like:

  • https://lars.ingebrigtsen.no/2020/08/02/emacs-on-macos-for-linux-peepshttps://andersmurphy.com/2021/11/14/emacs-building-from-source-on-macos.html

And I agree with Lars who writes:

  So I wondered what you'd have to do to build Emacs under Macos, and
  ...  I found a bunch of people talking about how easy it is, but nobody
  actually, like, says how to do it.

Hence my question about a canonical recipe for building Emacs under
macOS.  And I don't want to use a patched version of Emacs, that would
make submitting bug reports more complicated.  So I will start building
Emacs with homebrew and see how far I get.

Best, Arash
