That’s probably the right thing to do.  The new ‘bootstrap’ phase
introduced in core-updates would run anything called ‘bootstrap’, but it
doesn’t check whether that thing is a directory…

If this is a single occurrence, then I agree this is the way to go, but I would
make a mental note to fix this in the phase, if this turn out to be more widespread.
