Indeed I need to think about this more... My initial thought is that it
should be treated like loaddefs.el (and finder-inf.el, cus-load.el,
etc). All these are pre-built in the release tarfile, so maybe
leim-list.el should be too. Now that I think about it, it's suprising
that it isn't already.

Right. But when bootstrapping on MS Windows, there must still be two
versions of the emacs binary, right? One that is called early on and
loads uncompiled Lisp files (whether or not it is called
"bootstrap-emacs"), and is used to generate the compiled Lisp files that
are loaded by the final, "proper" Emacs? If so, I mean the first one.
