I thought I was.  I used emacs -Q, and all of the files
for each build are in the same directory.

I don't think so.  Please point me to a thread about that.

The only thing I recall that is similar to what you are
saying is that the Emacs snapshots/binaries made available
to us did not use the latest texinfo or whatever.  So what
I reported wrt curly quotes did not correspond to what you
thought should have been the case.  That was a problem
caused not by my setup but by the Emacs build (I don't
build Emacs).

Does that sound familiar?  Is it what you really meant?
If not, please do point out a thread where this was
discussed and the cause of the problem was found.
