Hi David,

It doesn't seem that you're doing a `make bootstrap' at the top-level
directory while you got this error message.  Otherwise lisp/abbrev.elc
would have already been created.  The top-level Makefile will not try
to create ../etc/DOC before that happens.

Are you in fact doing a `make bootstrap' when you got the above
messages?  If not, can you please try doing that.

One thing to try is running `make extraclean; ./configure
<...whatever...>; make bootstrap'.  If the same thing happens, please
send a few more lines (say 50) at the end of the build.

General help requests like this one are probably more suitable for the
USENET newsgroup gnu.emacs.help than emacs-devel.
