If you try to build two trees from the same source directory at the
same time, alternating the respective SRCDIR/configure, make, and make
install operations, the first tree will end up with a ".2" version while
the second tree will end up with a ".1" version.  This doesn't happen if
you don't have separate "make" and "make install" steps.

I don't know if this behavior is intentional, but in case it's not, I
thought I'd report it.

You can trivially reproduce the situation with this script (using the
23.0.96 archive), and note that the same thing still happens if you omit
the differing configure arguments:

#!/bin/bash

set -e
set -x

tar xf emacs-23.0.96.tar.gz

mkdir -p build/1
mkdir -p build/2

(cd build/1 && ../../emacs-23.0.96/configure --with-x=yes)
(cd build/2 && ../../emacs-23.0.96/configure --with-x=no)

(cd build/1 && make)
(cd build/2 && make)

mkdir -p install/1
mkdir -p install/2

inst_1="$(pwd)/install/1"
inst_2="$(pwd)/install/2"

(cd build/1 && make DESTDIR="${inst_1}")
(cd build/2 && make DESTDIR="${inst_2}")

find -name "emacs-23.*"
find -name "DOC*"

I think this happens because the second make recompiles the .el files,
and the output .elc files are written into the lisp/ directory in the
source-tree, not the build directory. Then the first build thinks it
need to redump Emacs, because the .elc files have newer timestamps.

Neither make should need to compile the .el files at all, but this is
tricky, see http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=2151 .

Arguably, the compiled .elc files should be written into the build
tree's lisp/ directory, not the source lisp/ directory.
But, they are supposed to be platform independent, so maybe the current
set-up is designed to let them be shared between all builds.
But, they get recompiled anyway, so that doesn't actually work...
