Bootstrap deleted DOC-nnn file

I did a bootstrap, and it deleted the existing DOC-nnn file
that was used by the running Emacs.  As a result, that Emacs
had no access to documentation of dumped functions.

Because DOC-nnn files are numbered with versions, and each
time Emacs is dumped it gets a new number, there is no need
to delete the preexisting ones.  Why not leave them alone?
