Re: emacs -Q behavior doesn't match doc

   I get a "Don't know how to make maintainer-clean" message when I run
   `nmake maintainer-clean'.  I made the mistake of locating a makefile that
   DID know how and it emptied my emacs\info directory.  nmake bootstrap
   completes successfully but it never rebuilds the info files.

It does rebuild them.  But you may have to run `make install' after
`make bootstrap' to install them in the place an installed Emacs looks
for them.

make maintainer-clean
make bootstrap
sudo make install

should have properly updated all your info files as well as everything else.
