Yes, you're right.  Thanks.  However, it doesn't explain why it tries to
bootstrap when I just do make:

   address@hidden:~/emacs/build$ make
   boot=bootstrap-emacs;                         \

I don't recall this happening before.  I had presumed that this is due to this

        * Makefile.in (${lisp} ${SOME_MACHINE_LISP}, ../lisp/loaddefs.el):
        Use $(BOOTSTRAPEMACS) rather than witness-emacs.

Maybe it has something to do with using a separate build directory
(~/emacs/build/) to the source (~/emacs/src)

I could do but it's more inconvenient than my previous method.
