Is that true?  I haven't tried to investigate yet, but they are actually
rebuilt here (24.3 tarball).  This makes me suspicious about using
a single source directory for the four emacs flavors we ship in the
OpenBSD ports tree - thinking of two or more emacs processes writing the
same .elc at the same time.
