If you think it is an unloaded variable error, then there is a simple
work around. Do (require 'compile) before calling any `compile-*'
function or setting any `compile-*' variable. This will load compile.el
(or more probably compile.elc). It does not affect performance in any
way (assuming you are going to call `compile' soon).
