In CVS Emacs the docstring already contains the following paragraph:

   This variable is defined for customization so as to make it visible
   in the relevant context. However, actually customizing it is not
   allowed, since it would not work anyway. The only way to set this
   variable usefully is to set it while building and dumping Emacs.
