It's certainly better for when you update Emacs from CVS and then run
"make" to build the new version.  Currently, you at least can build
Emacs from C sources before you "make recompile" in the lisp
directory; with the logic you suggest, it might fail due to mixing old
*.elc files with new *.el files.
