OK, I can see why this is a valid reason.  But how does it happen,
technically, that the emacs-debugsource directory is different?  I
mean, isn't the source directory recorded at build time, both in the
debug info and in the dumped Emacs?  I'm missing the mechanism or
procedure by which these two become different.

Or maybe you didn't mean the source directory as recorded in the debug
info.  But then where is the emacs-debugsource directory recorded?
