        That’s why it’s generally possible to reuse build directories
        whether building in or out of $(srcdir).

        Unfortunately, and unlike the majority of the GNU software I’ve
        dealt with, Emacs does not currently allow the user to choose:
        $(srcdir) gets changed irrespective of the use of a separate
        build directory.

        Which makes me wonder if there’s a respective bug somewhere on
        the BTS, or if I should file one myself?

        Except that it’s known to break builds if the dependencies are
        incomplete or became broken themselves.
