OK, but I didn't realize ./src/emacs was doing anything wrong.  In
lisp/Makefile, EMACS is set to ./src/emacs and EMACS is what's used to
run custom-deps.  Isn't ./src/emacs the binary that's eventually
installed in bindir?  If so, then isn't it *supposed* to be using the
installed Lisp directories (unless it's overridden by EMACSLOADPATH or

If that's right, then I running gdb on emacs probably won't help, but
using $(emacs) instead of $(EMACS) would (or something similar).  If
that's wrong, then part of the problem is that I'm misunderstanding
the semantics here.
