I should have tried with -Q, it turns out that I had this in my ~/.emacs:

    (setq package-activated-list nil)

I was defining it because a package I was using used it, but I hadn't
tried my ~/.emacs on Emacs trunk, so it wasn't compatible with a Emacs
that has package.el built-in.

Sorry about the noise. I think this bug can be closed.
