In my case, I never (or at least very rarely) care about building
exactly the actual release and I prefer building from the
`emacs-NN` branch.

Typically the main purpose is to run some older Emacs to see if some
ELisp code works on that older version and the difference between
`emacs-NN` and the actual release is negligible in that case.
