OK.  I call make with

    PATH=~/path/to/emacs-25/src:$PATH make -k

, and I've inserted a "-Q" into the definition of EMACS in GNUMakefile.
But I get a near infinite number of errors like:

    Error loading autoloads: (file-error Cannot open load file No such
    file or directory tex-site)

, always complaining about the one file tex-site.  tex-site.el is in the
auctex package.  Have you any notion as to why so many files are trying
to load tex-site.el/c, and why they're not finding it?

Funnily enough, my make -k bailed out about 15% of the way through the
build.  I'll need to look at that.
