Overflowing the pure area is not a problem.  It's only a performance
issue, which is irrelevant during bootstrap.  Check my patch to
alloc.c committed around the same time.

The DOC file built during bootstrap is not 100% correct and has
to be scrapped and rebuilt once we have the elc files.

I think it'd be a bug if compiling a .el file requires the DOC file.
