## Note that the Makefiles in the etc directory are potentially useful
## in an installed Emacs, so should not be excluded.
## I'm not sure creating locallisppath here serves any useful purpose.
## If it has the default value, then the later write_subdir commands
## will ensure all these components exist.
## This will only do something if locallisppath has a non-standard value.
## Is it really Emacs's job to create those directories?
## Should we also be ensuring they contain subdirs.el files?
## It would be easy to do, just use write_subdir.
## We used to create locallisppath, but if it points to non-standard
## locations, is not really Emacs's job to create these directories,
## so it is no longer done.
## Note that we use tar instead of plain old cp -R/-r because the latter
## is apparently not portable (even in 2012!).
