           Summary: Docs for building llvm-gcc-4.2 incorrectly explain
                    bootstrap option.

For GCC 4.0.1 the instructions in README.LLVM are correct (barring the
oversight reported earlier).  Things have changed for 4.2, however, as regards
bootstrapping.  Where in the old system you just had to make
LLVM_VERSION_INFO=n.n bootstrap/bootstrap2 after doing your configure, the new
system has an extra configure option required: --enable-bootstrap.  Without
that option set up, the build fails with bizarre error messages like "unknown
target '!'" and the like.  Documentation should be updated to reflect this
