    Yes.  Tho, only if the source C directory is found.

I think we should find a way to prevent this buffer from remaining
permanently in Emacs.  It could perhaps be deleted if not used
for 10 minutes.

However, with some versions of malloc there is a risk it would create
a big block that maybe would never again be used for anything else.
We need to rethink whether this feature is a good idea.
