Emacs built on the Mac OS supports many of its major features:
multiple frames, colors, scroll bars, menu bars, use of the mouse,
fontsets, international characters, input methods, coding systems, and

dump-emacs), asynchronous subprocesses
start-process), and networking (
As a result, packages such as Gnus, GUD, and Comint do not work.

they are not supported in the Mac OS version.
