comment Uninstalling Emacs on OS X (Snow Leopard)
I went ahead and deleted paths 1, 2, 3 and 7 (not the whole tree, just the relevant branches); sudo port uninstall emacs took care of cleaning up paths 4 and 5. Path 6, with its libdin contents seems important, so I won't manually delete it. After all this, I reinstalled the binary from the emacs-for-mac-os-x, and this time it installed without a glitch. I finally have emacs again! The icon on the Dock's Applications folder is non-descript, but I can live with that. The icon in the Dock is as it should be. Thanks for all the help!

Oh, and apparently I installed the Macports version. I thought I had not.

The paths are: 1. /opt/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/ 2. /opt/local/share/emacs/23.2/site-lisp 3. /Developer/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp 4. /opt/local/var/macports/software/emacs/23.2_2/opt/local/share/emacs/site-lisp 5. /opt/local/var/macports/software/emacs/23.2_2/opt/local/share/emacs/23.2/site-l‌​isp 6. /opt/local/var/macports/software/libidn/1.19_0/opt/local/share/emacs/site-lisp 7. /Users/ricardo/Desktop/temp-emacs/emacs/site-lisp/ The last one has a 'CVS' folder as a subdirectory.

No authentication or anything. I even tried to unpack the .dmg through the command line, but that failed too (couldn't recognize the package or something like that). I had already deleted the Emacs.app by dragging it into the Trash; it asked me to authenticate. I still ran the sudo rm -rf /Applications/Emacs.app (for good measure) and nothing happened, as expected.

Thanks Keith. I dragged the Emacs.app from the Application folder into the Trash. It requested authorization to delete, which I gave. That took care of Version 23.2 (9)!!! At least according to when I right-click a .el file. I still have seven (7) different site-lisp directories and versions 23.1.90 and 24.0.50 available, the latter as default. They both seem to work ok.

@Mark: I'm new to OS X and (somewhat) old to Emacs. It's purely a matter of preference... I kind of like the clunky look of Emacs.
