My above message assumed that people (1) have emacs already installed,
and (2) are using GNU make.  It seems slightly dubious for INSTALL.CVS
to assume those things, but in practice they're probably often true.

Note that I also recommend recompiling the lisp files _before_ compiling
emacs, as sometimes lisp changes can affect the emacs build, but again
that requires a pre-existing emacs binary.

I don't understand why INSTALL.CVS says to re-run ./configure though --
that seems almost never necessary (as the Makefile will do so
