Yes.  That's exactly what the command I show above does.

emacs.exe in the BLD directory is a normal dumped Emacs, it's just not
installed in `bin', and, possibly, didn't yet pick up all the latest
doc strings due to modified Lisp files.  "make install" handles both
of these issues, but for compiling Lisp files, emacs.exe in BLD is
usually good enough.

"make recompile" doesn't do anything with emacs.exe, so I'm unsure
what you are asking here.

In any case, if bin/emacs.exe is up to date, it's better to use it
than src/oo-spd/i386/emacs.exe, because the former is guaranteed to
have all the latest changes in doc strings and have all the latest
Lisp files preloaded into it.
