Sorry, if you feel offended. I just happen to bump into a problem and
searched the web and found the same problem has been reproted
before. If some GNU Emacs developers feel offended by the referencing
of an old report, I could just describe the problem next time, no more
any referencing. But that is a quite strange request, I don't think
it's anybody's fault if there's a subtle unsolved bug in a program,
because different people has a diverse different system
configuration. I'm not a native english speaker, I have to reference
the dictionary many times while composing email in english, It's quite
an opportunity I pick up a wrong word to express my thought. If some
people feel offended, sorry for that. And finally, thanks for your
correction of the grammer.

May be I didn't describe the problem clearly. The problem is bootstrap
stoped while compliling lisp/url/vc-dav.el, it complains that there's
no DOC file in the etc/ directory, so I have to copy the `DOC' file
from lib-src/ to etc/ manually and bootstrap again.
