It should just be for org. I imagine an order-only prerequisite for
org.texi on src/emacs (as well as normal prerequisites on all the
relevant org.el source files, sigh).

By "bootstrapping Emacs" I meant "building it from the Emacs repository".
This includes generating the info documentation from whatever the
ultimate source files are, not just creating src/(bootstrap-)emacs.
