No need to apologize, I didn't explain enough.

What I meant is this: modify the line in admin/unidate/makefile that

        "../../src/oo-spd/i386/emacs.exe" -Q --multibyte -batch -f 
batch-byte-compile unidata-gen.el

to say this instead:

        "../../src/oo-spd/i386/emacs.exe" -Q --multibyte -batch --eval 
"(message \"%s\" load-path)"

and then see what it displays when you run "make bootstrap".

Note that, since admin/unidate/makefile is generated by "make
bootstrap", you will either need to edit admin/unidate/makefile.w32-in
and then run nt/configure.bat to create admin/unidate/makefile, or
edit admin/unidate/makefile while "make bootstrap" runs, but before it
gets to where it executes the above line.
