I see...  hmmm... I think I understand why that is.

Adding the above dependency means that witness-emacs will be recreated
everytime a C source file is changed, so every change to a C source file
will cause 2 dumps: one to `bootstrap-emacs' (via witness-emacs) and
another to `emacs'.  So it defeats the whole idea behind

I don't have a better answer yet, tho,
