Glen is right, actually. I neglected to read the README and INSTALL
files (Sorry. I've read them now.) and, instead, I just used my usual
build recipe which includes a bootstrap.

Rebuilding with a bare make after a fresh extraction from the tarball, I
get 37 warnings which is much less overwhelming than than 158!

unfortunate, of course, since it cheapens their value, but it's just one
of those things I suppose. I'm closing this.

Thank you for Emacs.
