 The bootstrap process makes sure all necessary files are rebuilt
 before it builds the final Emacs binary.
+If 'make bootstrap' fails, it may be necessary to do 'make maintainer-clean'
+followed by configure before trying it again.  (Occasionally the loaddefs.el
+file gets into a bad state due to changes in the Lisp libraries; this procedure
+forces it to be regenerated.)
 Normally, it is not necessary to use "make bootstrap" after every CVS
 update.  Unless there are problems, we suggest using the following
 alternative procedure after you have done "make bootstrap" at least
