I'm fairly new to CentOS, so please excuse my ignorance. I've installed CentOS 6.4, for which Emacs 23 is available; but I'd like to have Emacs 24. I've looked at rpmforge and epel, but neither seem to have Emacs 24 already packaged; and I've searched for every combination of emacs + 24 + centos without success. While I could, of course, just do the ./configure && make && make install dance, I don't like having software installed that's not in the packaging system. I'd appreciate any pointer to a prepackaged Emacs 24, or failing that, a good tutorial on how to package software correctly for CentOS.
