Re: loaddefs.el has no effect

When I build Emacs I want some additional major modes to be part of the build.
Previously I just put the additional mode files in \lisp\progmodes and rebuild.
I pretty much always just do a BOOTSTRAP build.

Something has changed in the last month or two because this doesn't work any 
loaddefs.el *does* contain the autoload commands for the new modes but Emacs 
doesn't recognize the mode commands.
If I manually do (load "loaddefs") then it works.

Sounds like Emacs uses loaddefs.el that's just a copy of
ldefs-boot.el.  The question is, why?

Can you post a full transcript of a "make bootstrap" session?

Having looked at the output I sent earlier myself I can't figure out how
the symptoms I'm seeing could possibly be happening. It says loaddefs.el gets rebuilt successfully and then it says it's loading it just before the final dump. So I'm totally lost...well more than usual anyway.
