I played around and it seems that in the emacs/lisp directory the
load path during bootstrapping is wrong calculated:

,----[ Wrong Load Path ]
| Using load-path (
|   /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp
|   /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp/emacs-lisp
|   /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp/language
|   /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp/international
|   /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/site-lisp/textmodes)

I don't know why this happens, maybe other people have an idea. As a
workaround you can go into the emacs/lisp directory and then put in
the following command:

| $ EMACSLOADPATH=. make bootstrap EMACS=../src/bootsrap-emacs.exe

Additional it needs too the following change in the loadup.el file,
because bootstraping wants to load too the compile.el file:

Index: loadup.el
RCS file: /cvsroot/emacs/emacs/lisp/loadup.el,v
retrieving revision 1.133
diff -r1.133 loadup.el
>                           (expand-file-name "progmodes" dir)


PS: I did the above with the source of 2004-02-09.
