doc/distrib.txt explain why it is recommended to compile only installer in
most cases.

On a 32bits system, it was working for me with 4.0.4-pre1{3,4} (which were
precompiled by a broken compiler) to compile again ldlinux.asm using make
spotless && make
I have actually no reason to recompile final 4.0.4 ldlinux.asm.
