Add a target that is the file produced by this command, then make the
above command the recipe of that target.  Similar to the
${leimdir}/ja-dic/ja-dic.el target.

But if the above doesn't help, someone else could do this part for

This writes out a .el file, but does it encode that file in UTF-8,
even if the locale's codeset is something other than UTF-8?  If not,
you need to bind coding-system-for-write to UTF-8.

This line is too long, suggest to break it in two.

Likewise here.
