Hm.  Sorry if I lost a past discussion here, but I think that
having a single make target that removes old .elc files and does
bootstrapping would be useful.

Here is the comment in Makefile, which apparently is not any more
consistent with the actual behaviour:

  #### Bootstrapping.

  ### This is meant for Emacs maintainers only.  It first cleans the
  ### lisp subdirectory, removing all compiled Lisp files.  Then a
  ### special emacs executable is built from Lisp sources, which is then
  ### used to compile Lisp files.  The last step is a "normal" make.
