I'm using Aquamacs 3.3 GNU Emacs 25.1.1 under MacOSX 10.12.6 (Sierra).

It's a fresh install of the operating system and aquamacs. Instead of just doing option-g to get meta-g like I used to, I now have to do option-g option-g to get meta-g. This is annoying.

Anyone come across this problem and solved it?

The actual root cause of the problem was that aquamacs only loads ~/.emacs and not ~/.emacs.d/init.el

Having moved my .emacs to the right place, the following config took effect as expected: (global-set-key [(meta g)] 'goto-line)
