emacspeakwin installer - byte compiling

Thinking more about the thing with cl-proclaim. This message is
something that was coming and going during my attempts. Alastair
helped me to understand it.

So it seems that byte-compiling during the installation would increase
portability. I don't want to force a very specific Emacs
version. Installer has access to Emacs. It could run compiling

Do you think it's worth doing?
