Yes; but that's not important in this case.  I could say
"EMACS=../src/emacs" and get the same results.

(The MS-DOS version installs the binary in-place, so the Lisp files
are not copied.  Therefore, whether I do this before or after "make
install" is not important.  The fact that I usually install first is
because I'm used to say "make install" instead of just "make".)

It works for "make recompile", yes.  But I think we should make sure
it also works for other targets where you want to replace $(EMACS)
with $(emacs).  (Do you really need to set EMACSLOADPATH for all of
those targets?)
