Not to start another bikeshedding thread, but just a thought: I wonder
whether using "dump file" for the emacs.pdmp file is the best idea.
Recall that building with unexec says "Dumping under the name...", so
"dumping" is not necessarily alien to unexec.  If "portable dump file"
is deemed too confusing, then perhaps we should use "pdump file"?
