AFAIK the latest Emacs23 (23.0.92.1 at last count) is in the emacs 
mainline (no branch required).  You don't need nmh, but you probably need 
m17n-lib-devel to build the latest freetype bits.

I built it with a hacked-up spec based on the emacs22 SRPM from rawhide.  
Both emacs22 and emacs23 sometimes suffer from BUG493141.
