   I built emacs from the cvs trunk today 

what commands did you use, precisely?

   and it crashed at me on startup while
   loading recentf-mode

with env var "CVSREAD" set to "1" and
using "cvs update
       && mv /tmp/byte-opt.el-1.94 lisp/emacs-lisp/byte-opt.el
       && ./configure --prefix ~/local
       && make clean
       && rm -f lisp/loaddefs.el
       && make bootstrap"
(these steps take into account the request by rms (in another message) to
revert byte-opt.el), i see a different error:

Generating autoloads for ps-bdf.el...
Generating autoloads for ps-bdf.el...done
Generating autoloads for progmodes/ps-mode.el...
Generating autoloads for progmodes/ps-mode.el...done
Generating autoloads for ps-mule.el...
Autoloads file /home/ttn/build/GNU/emacs/lisp/ps-print.el is not writable
make[2]: *** [autoloads] Error 255
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/ttn/build/GNU/emacs/lisp'

at the time of error, there is not even a single .elc file in the tree,
so i surmise that if byte-opt.el is a problem, it is only the tail end
of a series of other problems.  thus (to rms), i don't think reverting
it will be useful.

the message "Autoloads file .../ps-print.el is not writable" is strange;
the "autoloads file" should be loaddefs.el.  sounds like some kind of
internal corruption.

can you do a fresh cvs update and build using the above steps?  i'd like
to know if the error i see is reproducible.  if not, could you describe
what you see?
