Depends on whether you have a full or partial copy of the mirrored branch, I 
think (I have meanwhile almost ¾ GB on disk). You'll see which of the two 
methods works. You can also use 'bzr pull -v' so see a bit of the cause for the 
change you are downloading.

No, there is one step more necessary: ./ Bzr will remind of this 
It's also possible to change your mind and run configure with new settings; 
'./configure --help' gives an overview. 'make clean' can also be useful – 
otherwise, by using 'plain' make, a large number of DOC-<version>.<try> and 
emacs-<version>.<try> files can be installed.

Quite often a 'sudo make install' is necessary…

Most of these things can be performed in compile-mode in a *compilation* 
buffer. This can be a quite colourful experience…
