Yep.  It's the correct thing.  Now please send it to lilypond-bug so
that one of our bugmeisters adds it to the issue database.

If you install from the source, the canonical way to compile and
install emacs is to do the following in the top-level directory of the
unpacked .tar.gz bundle:

  ./configure [... options, see `configure --help' ...]
  make install

If you do that, the elisp files are installed also.  In other words,
if you do a normal build, the documentation that irritates you is

There are more deficiencies, not only in the documentation: For
example, the installation directory for the elisp files can't be
changed with an option of the configure script or with an environment
variable; its value is hardcoded in file `'.
