emacs 21 build instructions?

Like many, I saw the Emacs 21 announcement on slashdot.  I checked out
the CVS tree, and was unable to build using the standard procedure:

   ./configure
   make

...the build didn't understand how to create the .elc files.

Karl Fogel, a friend of mine who follows the emacs developers' list,
discovered that the key was to run 'make bootstrap'.  

The bug here -- I think -- is that I found no mention of 'make
bootstrap' anywhere within the README or INSTALL.  Another friend
prodded me to mail this issue to this address.

Apologies in advance if this is a known bug, or already fixed, or if
I'm just being stupid.
