I've downloaded Emacs from Github's Emacs mirror (commit f92c4be63204ed0bd914). Using Mac OS X 10.6.4, I'm now about to compile and install Emacs.app.
nextstep/INSTALLATION doc states nothing about
make boostrap. Whereas, at various places on the Internet (following the
./configure --with-ns step but before the
make step), I often see that 'boostrap' part included in the installation process.
I'm just wondering what
make bootstrap does, and if it's beneficial or even needed?
