Hi, Emacs!

Yet another bootstrap failure:

Am I doing something wrong?

Did you try the steps below?

% cvs update
% make maintainer-clean
% ./configure --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no
% make boostrap

Unless one has the energy to debug build failures, it's hardly worth the
hassle of cvs-updating Emacs at the moment.  It _never_ builds cleanly -
unless the moon is currently blue.  It seems it's not just me.

This constant brokenness of the CVS head saps infinite energy from me.
This probably isn't just me, either.  I really can't be bothered to debug
the latest commission every time I do a CVS update.  And yes, I'm aware
I've broken the CVS build in the past, too.

There was some talk a while ago of commissions triggering an automatic
build.  This would be nice.

A makefile with proper dependencies might also be a solution.

Please can we fix this with some urgency?
