Sorry for unclear wording.

I meant to touch config.h on the machine of the developer who made the
change, when that developer builds Emacs after the change to test that
the change works.  This will reveal problems that otherwise could
destabilize the CVS tree.

I suspect that the problem is with the many Lisp-related macros on
lisp.h.  If this is indeed the case, it will not be easy to split
