Me too.  In my case, the make proceeds past the byte-compiler errors,
but finally dies with:

   mingw32-make[1]: *** No rule to make target `../lisp/language/european.elc', 
needed by `DOC'.  Stop.
   mingw32-make: *** [bootstrap-gmake] Error 2

which is simply fallout from an earlier byte-compiler error for

   Compiling language/european.el

   In toplevel form:
   language/european.el:237:1:Error: Invalid read syntax: ". in wrong context"

I will put together the info that Eli has requested as soon as possible
and post it to this list.
