I recommend you wait for OS X to come around.  You will certainly have a
nice Emacs available at that point, and if you squeak enough, an IDL
Shell (non-IDLDE) mode too.  Of course, a very large portion of OS X
will be based on free software, so I don't know what this will do to
your world view ;).

In the meantime, did you try http://mac-emacs.sourceforge.net/?
