Sorry, I still don't understand.  Can you please epxlain in a few
more words?  The comment in Makefile.in seems to indicate that more
pure storage is needed for loading *.el files--are you saying that
the comment is inaccurate?

Btw, the change in alloc.c makes the comment immediately preceding
check_pure_size, the function you've changed, inaccurate: it still
says we signal an error.

I thought about a (remote) possibility that someone needs to run the
half-bootstrapped Emacs to debug or investigate some problem.  If
they do, they might want documentation features to work.  Not a big
deal, obviously, but so is building DOC.
