   What was the motive for changing it not to do that?

To make bootstrapping run faster.  We discussed this before and
decided to have `make bootstrap' remove the .elc files once again, but
provide some alternate version bootstrap-build that does not do that.



Again, this was never implemented.  I am not familiar enough with the
Makefiles to do this myself.
