I did encounter a bootstrap problem, and with Andreas' patch this
problem went away.  I'm not sure either whether this is the same
problem Andreas tried to address, or whether his patch is the right

Reproducing the problem is easy for me.  Just check out a fresh source
tree, comment out the exact line in lisp/Makefile.in, run the
configure script this way:

  $ CFLAGS="-g -g3 -gdwarf-2" ./configure --with-x-toolkit=gtk

and then start the bootstrap process:

  $ make -j2 bootstrap

The bootstrap process fails with the following messages:

Finding pointers to doc strings...
