I guess the text from INSTALL.REPO should be fine as standard:

    If 'make' fails, try 'make bootstrap'.  If CPU time is not an issue,
    'make bootstrap' is the most thorough way to rebuild, and avoid any
    spurious problems.

The "cl-"/struct/class thing is just the current spurious problem.

Although that doesn't necessarily cover the 'rm Makefile lib/Makefile'.
Perhaps we should add that to INSTALL.REPO as well?
