It still needs fixing.

The build process should be robust against EMACSDATA (and DOC, PATH, if
they matter) being previously set in the user's environment (and
registry on MS Windows, if possible).

In other words, something like:

export EMACSDATA=/path/to/emacs/21/etc

should not break a subsequent build of Emacs 24.4 in that environment.

The fix is to use EMACSDATA= where appropriate in the Makefiles,
and to change emacs to ignore an empty value. Or to unset EMACSDATA in
the Makefiles.
