I'm using it in Panther to compose this followup.  It works fine for

You can build an emacs 21.2 with X11 support via fink if you get the
current package descriptions (in this case emacs21 21.2-26).  

There's no fink package description yet for emacs 21.3 w/X11 in the
'stable' tree.  The emacs21-xaw3d you mention above is 21.3, but it's
in the 'unstable' tree, which I've found it best to avoid even though
it is more current.

You can run the X11 client remotely...
