 Sorry, forgot to update my own ticket...

 The problem was fixed somewhere, maybe upstream? At the moment, I can 
 compile the package without any errors.

This reappeared for me after the update to 23.4. It only fails on i386,
not amd64, and I've only checked 5.1_STABLE. I don't currently have any
i386 boxes running current.

 Not happened for me (i386-5.1.2-i386).

 Weird... I have no idea what's going on. The i386 box in question is
 running a somewhat outdated 5.1_STABLE (from a bit over a year ago,
 with bits and pieces patched by hand)... so maybe it's something in
 base causing it. But it doesn't make any sense that compiling elisp
 files would break depending on minor differences in base.

 I guess I'd better go figure out what the error message actually
 means.

 Some further information: when it breaks, you can do

    make build-env

 then in the build-env,

    cd lisp
    make
    exit

 and then do

    make BUILD_TARGET=all

 and the build will run to completion. (If you don't set BUILD_TARGET
 it reruns config.status and that causes it to fail again.)

 I have no idea why it succeeds if you start the make in the lisp
 subdir and fails if you don't.

 The specific thing it's doing when it breaks is building cus-load.el.

 ...for the record, this method stopped working after one of the
 updates and I reverted to emacs22, which seems to be an overall better
 choice anyway.
