I'm not sure what is wrong with your source tree. If you don't mind my
asking, are you sure about the integrity of your source tree? How did
you get it? tarball, bzr checkout, git mirror or somewhere else?
If it is possible, I would urge you to try in a fresh directory with
either the release source tarballs or the bzr head for emacs 23 (or 24
if you wish).
$ bzr branch http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/r/emacs/emacs-23
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
