Here you go for emacs (intel, at least):

unpack emacs source
unpack leim source in same directory
(both are available from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/)

../configure <i686>-<lfs>-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --with-gcc &&
make &&
make install &&

note: <i686> and <lfs> can be switched to your system type and a name you 
prefer, respectively. (e.g. i386-bob-linux-gnu)

I personally don't use emacs, but I know that many people do, so I thought 
I'd get the instructions done up.  The Packages for emacs and leim take up 
about 18 megs (gzipped) and there's also an international fonts package that 
is highly recommended.
