Does the emacs-unicode-2 branch bootstrap on Windows? I'm getting this error:

 Local variables entry is missing the suffix
 make[1]: *** [autoloads] Error -1
 make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/bin/emacs/unicode/lisp'
 make: *** [bootstrap-gmake] Error 2

(I forgot to say that is with Windows XP, MinGW 3.4.5, and using CMD, not sh.)

Well, it seems the problem is related to Emacs believing that some ^M
at the end of the lines are part of the local variables suffix.

I've been able to get much farther down the bootstrapping path by:

- checking out lisp/international/uni-*.el with -kb (which "cures"
the problem above)
- setting LANG=en_US.UTF-8 (this avoids a lot of warnings saying that
iso-latin-1 disagrees with system codeset cp1252)
- checking out assorted quail/*/* files with -kb (though I'm not
entirely sure that's needed)

However, unicode Emacs refuses to compile leim/quail/PY.el;
apparently, it has issues reading it:

In toplevel form:
quail/PY.el:87:1:Error: Invalid read syntax: "#"

Any idea?
