A clean bootstrap is obviously out of the question for me.
OTOH, I'd be happy if someone setup a build robot that constantly tries
to build Emacs, then run some tests, and if they all succeeds updates
a branch.  This way we can point people to *that* branch where the
obvious bugs have been filtered.  It wouldn't reduce the number of
bug-reports, but it would make reports such as this sh-script one be
machine-generated rather than human-generated, leading maybe to
less frustration.

Yes, as I said, I'd be delighted to integrate something like that in
