On HEAD there's a INSTALL-CVS on the root directory, though you're right
there is none on EMACS_21_1_RC. :(

Uh? AFAIK, there's no prebuilt binary for HEAD (we don't do nightly
tarballs, etc.), so *you* should know if the executable you're building
is optimized or not, shouldn't you?

As I said, I've been a few on my system, but nothing as serious as
"daily crashes", so it'd be *really* helpful to try entering the
debugger to see where's Emacs crashing.
