I've just tried configuring with --pdump, and it worked. Of
the build process failed because make expected to see an `xemacs'

I tried running `./src/temacs', and I got a working XEmacs. Wow.
Almost unbelievable. :-)
Heh, took some time to get there, but I'm at the point I don't know of
any more bugs to fix.
Which does not mean there aren't any, mind you :-)
BTW, I notice that the hash-tables are "reorganized" after
undumping. Why is that?
Because the default method for computing hashes for lrecords is using
the pointer itself. Since the pointers change, the hash values change
and the position of the objects in the hash table has to change.
Otherwise reads in the hash table fail randomly.
