bug#6805: 24.0.50; package--dir assumes that Emacs is installed

When I compile Emacs from Git and run it without doing "make install" I
run into this in package.el:

    (unless pkg-dir
      (error "Internal error: could not find directory for %s-%s"
             name version-str))

It's failing that assertion because package--dir assumes that Emacs is
already installed:

    package-directory-list is a variable defined in `package.el'.
    Its value is

It shouldn't do that. Usually Emacs runs fine if you build it and don't
install it.
