Do you use MSYS on Windows to build Emacs?


Sorry, I don't understand this.  What does it mean ``never happens
after I know it''?  Please explain.

I mean, after I know bootstrapping may stopped because of
the etc/DOC file, I always create such a file before bootstrapping,
so that this termination never happens again.

It matters.  I'd like to try to find a solution, but I need to know
the details first.  If you can reproduce this problem at will, please
send the complete transcript of a failed bootstrap.  The commands to
produce such a transcript are like this:

        cd nt
        configure 2>&1 | tee transcript.txt
        make bootstrap 2>&1 | tee -a transcript.txt

(You will need a port of the `tee' command.)  Then post the file
transcript.txt created by these commands.

OK.  I'll post the result if bootstrapping fails due to etc/DOC next

Btw, when I bootstrapping Emacs Unicode 2 branch in FreeBSD
4.8, it stops when building etags and some other tools (I don't
remember, though) because FreeBSD doesn't have the getopt_long
function.  I defined getopt_long as getopt, dropping other
arguments as in the etags.c file.  Does this matter as well?
