I appreciated your offer but given that the issue with the build is
well-known I prefer not to muck with my installation, especially since
in practical terms I can use "regular" Emacs. I'll wait for the
changes, keep a eye on the cvs logs and keep trying ;)

Again, thank you for you feedback on this.
