I don't think VC brings any benefits while building Emacs, indeed.
OTOH, if it needs to be turned off in this case, maybe it needs to be
turned off in other cases.  IOW, I'd rather try and make sure VC "never"
needs to be turned off, or only in cases where the user really has an
odd config that justifies such a measure.

E.g. we could change VC so it figures out which backend is in use
(etc...) more lazily.
