Weird, it failed the with the same errors I was getting using the XFS
LVM volume:

  make[2]: *** No rule to make target 
`/datacomp/emacs21-21.1/src/../lisp/register.elc', needed by `../etc/DOC'.  
  make[2]: Leaving directory `/datacomp/emacs21-21.1/src'
  make[1]: *** [src] Error 2
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/datacomp/emacs21-21.1'
  make: *** [debian/stamp-build] Error 2

I've been unpacking the source fresh for each try.

What seems to be causing this build error is that the dumped emacs
binary is missing.  I scrolled back in the make output, and saw
messages indicating that the dump had been successfully done to the
files src/emacs-21.1 and src/emacs, and that src/temacs had been
deleted.  But when I look in src/, temacs is still there, and there is
no sign of emacs-21.1 and emacs, but temacs is still there.

This is jolly strange.  Could the very presence of LVM be affecting
XFS, even though the filesystem is on a simple partition?
