Yes, that's what I tried to explain above.

Sometimes, you need to do that, especially when some unexpected and
strange problems happen.  The build procedure is not smart enough to
detect all of those situations.

That would not be very wise: bootstrap takes much more time, and is
most of the time unnecessary if one resync's with the CVS frequently
enough.  See INSTALL.CVS for more about this.  If bootstrap becomes
the default, many users will be unnecessarily punished.
