bug#2720: error in build cvs version on Mac OS X

Hi all,

It's now actually been a couple of *years* that I've been unsuccessful in building Emacs from cvs source on Mac OS X: first on my Powerpc Powerbook G4, and now on my Intel Mac. The build process always balks at the bootstrap stage with the following message:
Loading loadup.el (source)...
Using load-path (/home/ritesh/pkg/emacs/lisp /home/ritesh/pkg/emacs/ lisp/emacs-lisp \ /home/ritesh/pkg/emacs/lisp/language /home/ritesh/pkg/emacs/lisp/ international \
Loading emacs-lisp/byte-run (compiled; note, source file is newer)...
Invalid coding system: emacs-mule
make[1]: *** [bootstrap-emacs] Error 255
make: *** [src] Error 2
My build environment is quite pristine, no libraries from fink, etc., interfering with those installed by Xcode.
Here's how I run configure
CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-pointer-sign"
./configure                             \
--enable-locallisppath=$HOME/elisp      \
--without-pop                           \
--without-kerberos                      \
--without-kerberos5                     \
--without-sound                         \
--without-x                             \
-without-toolkit-scroll-bars            \
--without-dbus                          \
--without-gpm                           \
--with-ns                               \
Although I don't understand the last option, the build fails with or without it. It might not be a bug after all, but I have seen update after update to the cvs repository but the build failure refuses to go away. It's in sheer frustration that I'm resorting to sending a mail to the bugs list. Hopefully someone can figure out the problem, or has seen this issue elsewhere.
Help much appreciated,
