 Some further information: when it breaks, you can do
    make build-env
 then in the build-env,
    cd lisp
 and then do
    make BUILD_TARGET=all
 and the build will run to completion. (If you don't set BUILD_TARGET
 it reruns config.status and that causes it to fail again.)
 I have no idea why it succeeds if you start the make in the lisp
 subdir and fails if you don't.
 The specific thing it's doing when it breaks is building cus-load.el.
