No, it was just meant to use a build environment that is not polluted or 
limited by some terminal emulation programme. This programme can be the 
culprit. Or a setting. Settings can be in your shell or they can be for the 
programme (or X client). This is much too hard to debug. So some GNU Emacs is a 
perfect choice.

Has the same size as mine – there must be some bug in the build system.

Since the docs are not really necessary to run GNU Emacs, you could try to 
compile with 'make -k bootstrap' or just 'make -k' if the bootstrap argument 
makes make very picky and not forgive errors in this early stage. Then make 
will not stop when it sees an error. This way the src/emacs binary could be 
built. And it is, without installation, fully usable!
