   Do you mean that doing the checkout with CVSREAD=1 leads to bad source

sorry i wasn't more precise: CVSREAD=1 causes "cvs checkout" to create
read-only files.  some steps in "make bootstrap" fail because they need
to recreate or update files, and cannot do so.  (source files are not
corrupted, in any case.)

there was discussion previously about some script to be run immediately
after a "cvs checkout" but before "make bootstrap".  i suggest we write
that script, include "chmod +w $cannot_be_ro_file_list", and publish the
way to build emacs from cvs as:

 cvs checkout ...
 cd emacs
 sh -x prep-bootstrap   # ("-x" for entertainment purposes :-)
 make bootstrap

prep-bootstrap need not be distributed.
